Basketball Assistant Ken McDonald to Western Kentucky

A few years ago, it was Rick Barnes' assistant coach, Frank Haith, who departed Austin for a head coaching job at Miami. This year, Andy Katz of ESPN.com is reporting that Ken McDonald will leave the program after securing the head coaching job as Western Kentucky. McDonald was previously an assistant at Western Kenucky under head coach Dennis Felton from 1998-2003. Former Western Kentucky head coach, Darrin Horn, resigned last week to take the open job at South Carolina.

Congratualations to Coach McDonald! Good luck.

One other quick coaching note, McDonald may not be the only Longhorn assistant to leave this off-season. Rodney Terry is a candidate for the open head job at Rice.
