Sean Woods fired after five seasons as head coach at Southern

Southern announced on Wednesday evening that it was parting ways with head men’s basketball coach Sean Woods after five seasons. Woods went 64-82 at the helm, finishing 3rd or better in the SWAC on two occassions.

“At this time, we felt it was necessary to make a change in leadership of our men’s basketball program, over the last five years we have falling short of our standard and expectations for our men’s basketball program,” said AD Roman Banks said. “We thank Sean and his family for all they have done for SU and wish them the very best in their journey.”

The Jaguars last played in the NCAA Tournament in 2016 and their most recent SWAC title was in 2014.
