Nacogdoches, TX (Sports Network) - Stephen F. Austin has named Brad Underwood
its new men's basketball coach.
Underwood has spent 27 seasons in the coaching profession, including the past
two as an associate head coach under Frank Martin -- first at Kansas State and
then at South Carolina.
"Brad Underwood brings years of experience to SFA and has coached at the
highest levels of Division I basketball," said SFA athletic director Robert
Hill. "All of this plus his knowledge of the game and ability to recruit makes
him the perfect hire for our men's basketball program. He has great plans on
how we can make this program even better."
Before joining the Kansas State staff in 2006, Underwood was the head coach at
Daytona Beach Community College. He guided the Falcons to a record of 70-24 in
three seasons and was twice selected as the Mid-Florida Conference's top
Underwood, also a Division I assistant for 10 years at Western Illinois,
replaces Danny Kaspar, who left SFA after 13 seasons to take the head coaching
position at Texas State.
