Nacogdoches, Texas (KETK) — Stephen F. Austin Head Basketball Coach Brad Underwood has been offered the same position at Marshall University, according to ESPN . Marshall bought out the final two years of Tom Herrion's contract after a four-year run, reported ESPN.
Underwood led the Lumberbacks to a historic season, winning their first NCAA tournament game against VCU 77-75 in overtime. SFA's win over VCU marked their 29th straight win, second to only Wichita State at the time.
The team went unblemished in conference play at 18-0 and had a near perfect record overall at 32-3. The Jacks were knocked out in the round of 32 by UCLA, losing 77-60.
The first-year coach was also named one of the ten finalists for the 2014 Joe B. Hall award.
