After five seasons as an assistant coach at Texas A&M, Kyle Keller is expected to get a head coaching shot at Stephen F. Austin, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
Keller previously served as an assistant coach at Kansas for three years and Oklahoma State for nine years. His only head coaching experience came at Tyler (Texas) Junior College where he led the men’s basketball program for two seasons.
The loss of Keller is the second assistant for the Aggies to leave for a head coaching job after a successful season for Texas A&M. Rick Stansbury was named the new Western Kentucky coach at the end of March.
Texas A&M won a regular season SEC championship for the first time in 2016 and was the only school from the conference to advance to the Sweet 16.
