Morehead State looks into coach Woods' conduct
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Morehead State first-year coach Sean Woods is facing possible disciplinary action after appearing to shove Eagles' point guard Devon Atkinson during Wednesday's 81-70 loss to Kentucky.
Athletic department spokesman Matt Segal said Thursday the situation is being discussed internally and any disciplinary action would be announced Friday morning.
Atkinson fouled out with 5:51 remaining, and an agitated Woods shouted at the senor as he walked toward the bench. The coach then appeared to shove Atkinson in the back, pushing him forward, and continued yelling at him during the timeout.
It was Woods' second intense sideline encounter with a player this season. During a 67-45 loss at Maryland on Nov. 12, Woods was seen yelling in the face of Chad Posthumus while the junior center was sitting on the bench.
