MOREHEAD, Ky. — Morehead State has announced Jonathan Mattox has been named associate head coach to Preston Spradlin.

"I am excited to elevate Jonathan to associate head coach. He and I have worked together here at Morehead State for more than seven years, and he was the first coach with me when we began rebuilding our program four years ago," said Spradlin. "Jonathan has worked tirelessly on the recruiting trail, been instrumental in the development of our players and cultivated meaningful relationships with members of our campus and community. I am thrilled to continue our success and work to compete for future championships."
