Morehead State has suspended coach Sean Woods for one game after he appeared to shove an Eagles player during Wednesday night's loss at No. 8 Kentucky.

Woods will sit out Monday night's game against Norfolk State.

The first-year Eagles' coach appeared to shove Morehead State point guard Devon Atkinson in the back after the senior fouled out with 5:51 remaining.

Athletic director Brian Hutchinson suspended Woods Friday after meeting with the coach.

Hutchinson said in statement released by the university that, "This will allow Coach Woods to consider his action and behavior, and allow him time to contemplate the appropriate way to conduct himself with his players and on the sideline."

Woods apologized for his behavior in a statement and said the situation "will not happen again."
