Asbury announced Tuesday that Kentucky Christian University head man Will Shouse will be its new men's basketball coach.
Shouse, a former assistant under departed head coach Jim Aller, is coming out of two seasons at KCU where he was named NCCAA Mid-East Region Coach of the Year both years and was a finalist for national Coach of the Year in 2007. His teams placed third in the NCCAA Division II national semifinals both years.
Right now, his KCU team is ranked second in the nation in NCCAA Division II. He runs a high-powered offense - KCU led the nation in scoring both years Shouse was there. It was his first head coaching job.
A 2002 Asbury graduate, Shouse also played at Asbury under the man he is going to replace. He is a member of the 1,000-point club and broke the school record for 3-pointers made in his career. His history with the program made him attractive to Asbury Athletics Director Gary Kempf.
