Stephen F. Austin coach Brad Underwood has not been contacted by Missouri about its men’s basketball opening.

Underwood, a former Kansas State assistant under Bob Huggins and Frank Martin, said he’d listen if the Tigers called.

“That’s an unbelievable job,” Underwood said. “That’s my type of job. The basketball aside, it’s been a great spot for many years with a ton of great players. It’s a great university, but I’m still the coach at Stephen F.”

Underwood started his coaching career at Dodge City Community College, where he served as head coach for four seasons. He then spent 11 seasons as an assistant at Western Illinois.

After three years as the head coach at Daytona Beach Community College, he joined Huggins’ staff at Kansas State and stayed on with Frank Martin after Huggins left for West Virginia.

Underwood followed Martin to South Carolina for one season before taking over at Stephen F. Austin, where he led the Lumberjacks to a 32-3 season that included a Southland Conference championship and a win against VCU in the NCAA Tournament.

UCLA ended Stephen F. Austin’s season in round of 32.
