Sean Woods facing battery allegations in Indiana

Former UK star Sean Woods is facing allegations of battery in Indiana.

Morehead State v Kentucky

It’s been a rough year for Sean Woods, and it’s not getting better anytime soon for the former Cat.

Woods, who is still the head coach at Morehead State, is still serving a suspension issued by the school while they investigate complaints about Woods’ behavior.

Now, documents filed Tuesday in Evansville reveal allegations of battery against Woods, according to LEX18.

An affidavit signed on Tuesday in Evansville states that on or around November 19, Woods knowingly or intentionally touched basketball player Moliq Maitland in a rude, insolent, or angry manner by striking him, resulting in bodily injury.

The paperwork also states that another player, Sousiyane Diakite, is also accusing the coach of battery.

The details get worse as the story goes on. A court date for the accusations in question is scheduled for February in Indiana.

The 46-year-old starred at UK from 1988-92. He was the head coach at Mississippi Valley State from 2008-12, before being hired by Morehead State.

We probably should not expect to see Woods re-instated at Morehead State anytime soon after seeing this.

If these allegations prove to be true, it would be a tragic fall for Woods.
