Morehead State names Woods head coach

Morehead State has hired Sean Woods as head men's basketball coach.

Woods, who led Mississippi Valley State to the NCAA Tournament this past season, will be formally introduced at a press conference on Monday.

"I believe that Coach Woods' experience, character and integrity will help us continue the momentum that our basketball program has achieved in recent years," Morehead State president Dr. Wayne D. Andrews said in a statement. "I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding leader for our young men."

Woods takes over for Donnie Tyndall, who was hired as head coach at Southern Mississippi last month.
