Sean Woods resigned as Morehead State's coach after being charged with misdemeanor battery in Indiana for allegedly assaulting two of his players.

Athletic director Brian Hutchinson on Thursday announced Woods' resignation after four-plus seasons guiding the Eagles.

The coach had been suspended since Nov. 22 and Morehead State began investigating "complaints received" about him. Police in Evansville, Indiana, on Tuesday filed the battery charge against Woods. Morehead State was in Cheney on Tuesday, losing to Eastern Washington 88-86 in overtime.
