Beau Braden, who was a member of the Morehead State men’s basketball staff from 2011-2014, has once again been named assistant coach.
“Beau and I have been extremely close since we both got into coaching. We’ve always bounced ideas off of each other and talked about X’s and O’s, so this is a real dream for both of us to have the opportunity to work with one another and build this program the way we’ve always envisioned building it,” said head coach Preston Spradlin.
Braden comes to Morehead State after spending the last two seasons as an assistant coach at Bellarmine University (Ky.). With Braden’s assistance, Bellarmine had an extraordinary season in 2016-17. The Knights earned a fourth NCAA Division II Midwest Region title and trip to the Final Four in seven years while going 32-4 in accumulating the second-most wins in program history. Bellarmine won an outright Great Lakes Valley Conference East title and its third GLVC Tournament championship.
