A Sunday morning miracle: Cinderella ACU earns its glass slipper just after midnight
INDIANAPOLIS — David defeated Goliath. Again. It’s a March Miracle.…
After 30 seasons as head coach of the Harding University men’s basketball team, Jeff Morgan is retiring at the end of the 2022-23 season.
In those years, he’s led the Bisons of Harding — a Searcy, Ark., university associated with Churches of Christ — to 21 postseason tournament appearances and 448 wins, making him the basketball coach with the fourth most wins all-time in the state.
“Jeff Morgan has led Harding basketball through a storied era where the Rhodes-Reaves Field House became legendary in NCAA Division II,” said Harding President Mike Williams in a press release.
“But his legacy extends far beyond building a program. He mentored men who are great husbands and fathers, tremendous leaders and Spirit-led disciples.”
Morgan said he is stepping down because “it is time for a new voice for our young men.”
The university is in the process of searching for his replacement and is accepting applications at [email protected].
Morgan will continue to serve as Harding’s athletic director, a position he’s held since 2018.
