Morehead State introduces Woods as head coach

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — Sean Woods says it's a blessing to come home.

Woods was introduced Monday as the head coach of Morehead State after a four-year stint at Mississippi Valley State. He led the Delta Devils to a 21-13 mark this year and the school's fifth-ever NCAA tournament appearance before they lost to Western Kentucky in the first round.

Woods played at Kentucky from 1989-92 under coach Rick Pitino.

He may be best known for hitting the go-ahead basket with 2.1 seconds left in overtime for the Wildcats in the 1992 East Regional final against Duke just before Christian Laettner made the game-winner.

Woods says the fans probably know his past better than he does.

He takes over for Donnie Tyndall, who accepted the head coaching job at Southern Mississippi last month.
