Bennett: I'm still the basketball coach at Mid-Continent
The question to Winston Bennett was simple: Are you still the men's basketball coach at Mid-Continent University?
Late Thursday afternoon, Mid-Continent chief of staff Bill Bartleman released the following statement: “Mid-Continent University and men’s basketball coach Winston Bennett are in discussions regarding his future at the University. Additional information will be released at the appropriate time.”
Bennett just completed his sixth-season with the Cougars -- a season where he won the second-most games in his MCU career. The former Kentucky Wildcat took over the fledgling Cougar program in the spring of 2007. Bennett compiled a 91-103 record in his six years at MCU. Bennett's Cougars had some postseason success in recent years -- winning an NCCAA Mid-east Regional title in 2010, finishing third at the NCCAA National Tournament in 2010 and appearing in the TranSouth Athletic Conference Tournament Championship Game in 2012.
