Morehead to name Woods new basketball coach

The Morehead State basketball program has finally found their man, and his name is "Unforgettable".

Former Kentucky Wildcat and member of the "Unforgettables" Sean Woods will be announced as the new head coach at Morehead State Monday at 2pm. Woods led Mississippi Valley State to a 21-13 record last season, and takes over for Donnie Tyndall who was recently hired as the head coach at Southern Mississippi.

Morehead State athletic director Brian Hutchinson said tonight he was excited about hiring Woods. Hutchinson said, "He did a magnificent job at Mississippi Valley State, we feel fortunate to give him the opportunity at Morehead State. He has passion, energy, a good basketball mind and people think highly of him. Sean is the right guy for us. We were sorry to lose Donnie Tyndall but Sean gives us the best opportunity to build on what we've done."
