Sean Woods, newly named head mens basketball coach at MSU
Sean Woods, the ex-Kentucky Wildcat and new head coach at Morehead State, is already working his new team hard.
"I've had to get onto them, but that's to be expected," Woods said after a recent practice. "They know I love them and they know I want them to be better players and to be great players. The ultimate goal is to leave their mark on Morehead State University."
Woods takes over at Morehead St. after Donnie Tyndall left to become coach at Southern Mississippi. Woods previously was the head coach at Mississippi Valley State, where last season, he led the Delta Devils to the NCAA Tournament.
"I love the enthusiasm. These guys are very willing to learn, very excited about the newness and they're taking my coaching very well."
Woods currently is taking advantage of a new NCAA rule which allows coaches to supervise workouts up to eight hours per week during the summer.
"I've had joy all summer long being able to work out with these guys, to get them better. I like the new guys coming in," Woods said.
"We've got to get our guard play better, because it's going to be brand new. Once they come along and start to get it, we've got a chance to be pretty good."
