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.
