Head coach Sean Woods has agreed to a contract extension at Morehead State through 2019-20, the school announced on Monday in a release.

"This extension shows that I'm here for the long haul and that I've bought in to what is going on here at Morehead State," Woods said in the release. "We are committed to creating a culture of excellence, both on and off the court, and that shows with the players and everyone associated with the program."

So far, Woods has compiled a 75-63 record with the Eagles, giving him the most wins of any coach in school history after just four seasons. He is coming off his best season as Eagles coach, when he lead them to a 23-14 record and took them to within one game of the Ohio Valley Conference championship.

As a member of the 1992 Kentucky Wildcats basketball team, Woods is a statewide legend. He scored 21 points in that infamous Elite 8 game against Duke and hit the go-ahead jumper with 2.1 seconds to play, setting up Christian Laettner’s miracle shot as time expired.

Prior to taking over at Morehead State, Woods was the head coach at Mississippi Valley State, where he led them to an appearance in the NCAA tournament in 2012.
