Preston Spradlin, who spent the majority of the 2016-17 season as interim head coach and just concluded his third season with the program, has been named the 14th head men’s basketball coach at Morehead State.
“First off, I am so grateful to President Wayne D. Andrews, Brian Hutchinson, and our administration for the opportunity to lead the men’s basketball program and to represent Morehead State University and the community of Morehead,” said Spradlin. “As a native Kentuckian, and more importantly, as someone that has been a part of the Morehead State family for the past three seasons, I fully understand how special this university is and I am honored to continue serving our student-athletes in all facets and am eager to reignite our passionate fan base.”
“Preston emerged through a rigorous process that demonstrated truly how special this job is in the basketball community,” said President Wayne D. Andrews. “I have appreciated his good work throughout this season and know his values will help us continue to achieve our goals at a very high level.”
