Morehead State University has suspended Sean Woods with pay effective immediately.  Morehead State issued the following statement:

“Resulting from complaints received, the institution has begun an investigation involving the head basketball coach. While we continue through the formal process, we believe it is prudent to suspend the coach until the investigation is finished,” said Brian Hutchinson, director of athletics.

“Assistant Coach Preston Spradlin will serve as head coach in the interim until the investigation is completed. We have full confidence in Preston and his ability to lead our student-athletes both on and off the court. Since this is an ongoing process, we will be unable to comment further until this comes to a conclusion.”

The Kentucky Unforgettable is 2-2 in his fifth season at Morehead State.  Since arriving in northeastern Kentucky in 2012, the Eagles are 77-65 under Woods. Another former UK player, Preston Spradlin, will coach the Eagles until the investigation is concluded.


According to Kennedy Hardman of ABC 36, the investigation comes after Morehead State players petitioned the NCAA to be able to transfer and play immediately, citing “mistreatment and a hostile environment” under Woods.

      This, agree, most likely. Probably couldn’t find a ‘safe space’ during practice.

    Preston Spradlin was never a player he was a grad assistant or something similar. He was on the.
    bench a few good years and even was on the staff during the national championship team in ’12. Then got the assistant job at morehead. Really happy for him but wonder what all is goin on at the Head

    Not really surprised, based on the Bobby Knight-like tirade he unleashed on one of his players when they played UK a few years ago.
