Southern Miss after Underwood, withdraws name from Marshall consideration

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - All eyes are on Stephen F. Austin men's head basketball coach Brad Underwood and what his next move might be, or if he will stay with the Lumberjacks.

As of Wednesday, CBS Sports reported that the University of Southern Mississippi has identified Underwood as their top choice to replace their basketball coach Donnie Tyndall, who left to coach at Tennessee earlier this week.

Then there's Marshall, and that's where it gets confusing.

ESPN writer Andy Katz took to twitter earlier reporting that Marshall had offered Underwood the position.

Then an Assistant AD of Media Relations with Marshall backfired saying no offer had been made.

Moments later, Katz reported that Underwood had decided to withdraw his name from consideration.
