Randy Peele is the head men's basketball coach at Winthrop Universitymarker. He took over the position vacated by Gregg Marshall in 2007. Peele previously held the same position at the University of North Carolina at Greensboromarker.

Peele graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College in 1980 with a degree in secondary education. In 1983, he began his coaching career when he accepted an assistant's job at Saint Michael's College in Vermont. After two years in Vermont, Peele spent three years as an assistant with the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawksmarker, and another three years with the Campbell Fighting Camels.

In 1991, Peele accepted an assistant's job at the University of North Carolina at Greensboromarker. After four years with the Spartans, Peele was promoted to replace former head coach Mike Dement, who had left to take over the men's basketball program at SMU.

In Peele's first season, only the second year in which UNC-Greensboro was eligible for Division I postseason competition, the Spartans won the Big South Conference regular season and tournament championships. In the NCAA tournament, UNC-Greensboro were the 15th seed in the Southeast region, and fell in the first round to the Cincinnati Bearcats.

After 1996, however, Peele had little success with the Spartans. UNC-Greensboro followed up their Big South championship with a 10-20 regular season, and then left the Big South in 1997 to join the Southern Conference. The Spartans finished at or near the bottom of their division in both of their first two seasons in the SoCon, and after four years in Greensboro, Peele left the Spartans and took an assistant's job with the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Peele spent three seasons under Ricky Stokes in Blacksburg before leaving and spending a season away from coaching. In 2003, he resurfaced in the coaching world, this time as an assistant to Gregg Marshall at Winthrop Universitymarker. In four seasons at Winthrop, the Eagles won three straight Big South titles, culminating in 2007 with a first-round upset of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the NCAA Tournament.

Following the 2007 season, Marshall left Winthrop to take the vacant head coaching position at Wichita State Universitymarker. Winthrop's administration wasted little time, and quickly promoted Peele to take over for Marshall. The 2007–2008 season will be Peele's fifth season as a head coach.
