Arkansas State coach John Brady to step down after season

Arkansas State Red Wolves head men’s basketball coach John Brady will step down at the end of the season after eight years with the program.

Athletic director Terry Mohajir announced Brady’s decision, which was reported by Scott Phillips of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.

Mohajir addressed Brady’s departure in a statement.

“John alerted me today of his intentions to resign at the end of the season, at which time we had a conversation regarding his decision,” said Arkansas State athletics director Terry Mohajir. “I have a great deal of respect for John as a person and coach, and we appreciate his desire to finish the rest of the season as our head coach. We will support him, his coaching staff and our players as they pursue a Sun Belt Conference championship this season.

“Coach Brady has had a great coaching career, including guiding Arkansas State to two Sun Belt Conference West Division championships. We wish him only the best the rest of this season and beyond.”

Brady, 61, has gone 110-108 (61-65 Sun Belt) since arriving in Jonesboro. In a career that has also seen stops at LSU (who Brady took to the Final Four in 2006) and Samford, Brady has gone 391-324.

Just why he has chosen to step down is not yet known, but Campus Sports will update this story if any new information becomes public.
