MOREHEAD ST. BASKETBALL | Eagles Introduce Spradlin as Head Coach

03/28/2017 07:41 PM

The Morehead St. athletic department made it official on Tuesday, holding a press conference to introduce Preston Spradlin as the men’s basketball program’s 14th head coach.

Last week, MSU removed the “interim” tag off of Spradlin’s title after finishing its national search for a permanent head coach.

Spradlin became the interim head coach of the Eagles in December, after then-head coach Sean Woods resigned.

Spradlin took over a team that was only 2-7 on the season, but he turned the Eagles around, leading them to a 14-16 overall record by the season’s end.

Sports Night’s Lyndsey Gough sat down with Spradlin after Tuesday’s press conference:
