Morehead women's coach Bradbury resigns

MOREHEAD — Mike Bradbury, who led Morehead State to its first-ever Division I post-season appearance in 2009-10 has resigned as women's basketball coach to pursue other professional opportunities, the school announced.

Bradbury finished his three seasons at Morehead with a 72-53 record.

"We are disappointed to be losing a coach of Mike's caliber, and we thank him for three years of success," Morehead State Director of Athletics Brian Hutchinson said. "However, we will move forward with the next chapter of Eagle women's basketball. We will find a candidate who understands the short and long-term goals of our program and has the credentials to help us reach those goals."

Morehead State finished 22-11 overall and 14-4 in the Ohio Valley Conference this past season. The 22 wins set the school's NCAA-era record (since 1981-82) for most in a season.

The Eagles' season ended in the College Basketball Invitational tournament with a 67-59 loss to College of Charleston.

Morehead State was Bradbury's first head coaching job. Previously, he was an assistant at Xavier, Cincinnati, Virginia Commonwealth, East Tennessee State and Chattanooga.

Morehead State will immediately begin a national search for Bradbury's replacement.
