Southeast Missouri hires Brad Korn as men's basketball coach

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Southeast Missouri hired Kansas State assistant Brad Korn as its basketball coach Monday.

Korn spent the past five seasons with the Wildcats, the past four as an assistant coach, helping the school to three NCAA tournament appearances and a share of the Big 12 regular-season title two years ago. Most of his work has been with post players, including Dean Wade, who was a back-to-back first-team all-conference selection.

Redhawks athletic director Brady Barke said Korn signed a five-year contract through the 2025 season.

Korn, who also has worked at Southern Illinois and Missouri State, takes over for Rick Ray. Ray was fired after going 51-104 over five seasons, including a 7-24 mark this past season.
