Southeast Missouri tabs Korn as head coach

23 March 2020 - Southeast Missouri hired Kansas State assistant Brad Korn as its men’s basketball coach, the school announced Monday.

Korn, 38, spent five seasons (2012-13, 2016-20) with the Wildcats, the first one as an operations director and the past four as an assistant coach. He replaces Rick Ray, who was fired after the Redhawks posted a 7-24 record this past season.

Southeast Missouri athletic director Brady Barke said Korn signed a five-year contract through the 2024-25 season.

“I’m excited to welcome Brad and his family to Cape Girardeau,” Barke said in a statement. “Brad is a winner and has an incredible knack for building relationships with student-athletes, while developing them both on and off the court. His energy and passion will bring a renewed sense of excitement to SEMO Basketball.”

Korn has previous experience as an assistant coach at Southern Illinois (2006-12) and Missouri State (2013-16).
