Southern University Athletics is set to introduce Sean Woods as the new head men’s basketball coach during a press conference scheduled for Thursday, April 12 at 1 p.m.
Woods, who served as the assistant coach at Stetson University in Deland, Florida, last season, won the Southwestern Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament championships as the head coach at Mississippi Valley State in 2012.
During the 2011-12 season, Woods led the Delta Devils to a 21-13 record, including a 17-1 record in league play, and earned SWAC Coach of the Year honors.
A native of Indianapolis, Woods also received the Ben Jobe National Coach of the Year Award - an honor presented annually to the most outstanding minority men’s basketball coach in Division I basketball.
After leaving Mississippi Valley in 2012, Woods became the head coach at Morehead State University, where he compiled a 77-70 record in five seasons.
He succeeds Morris Scott who had served as interim coach following the promotion of Roman Banks to director of athletics last year.
Woods starred collegiately at Kentucky from 1988-1992 and was a member of the Wildcats senior-laden cast known as the “Unforgettables.”
