Sheehy resigns at JBU

Clark Sheehy resigned as head men's basketball coach at John Brown University on Tuesday to accept the head coaching position at Southwest Baptist University.

The Golden Eagles were 154-77 during Sheehy's seven-year tenure, winning a conference tournament championship and a regular season conference title. In 2010, Sheehy led JBU to the Exclusive Eight in the NAIA Tournament.

Sheehy was a player at JBU in the 1990s when his father, John Sheehy, was the program's head coach.

Southwest Baptist is a NCAA Division II program located in Bolivar, Mo. JBU officials said a nationwide search for Sheehy's replacement would begin immediately.
