Texas A&M Assistant Kyle Keller named Stephen F. Austin Head Coach

Kyle Keller was formally named SFA head coach this afternoon

A Texas A&M Assistant was poached for a head coaching gig for the second time in seven days.

Ah, the joys of program success.

Keller was tapped as the new HC at Stephen F. Austin, who lost head coach Brad Underwood to Oklahoma State following an excellent three season run (going 53-1 in conference) that almost culminated in a Sweet Sixteen appearance.

Keller was widely regarded as an excellent recruiter, and his departure leaves Billy Kennedy with two extremely important staff decisions to make in the coming weeks.

Best of luck in Nacogdoches, coach.

Note: The Houston Chronicle recently ran an excellent piece on Keller's harrowing background that we strongly recommend.
