Morehead State Hires Jason Woodman as Head Coach

After a month of searching for its next head coach, Morehead State has hired Jason Woodman. Woodman spent the previous decade as head coach with NCAA Division 2 program Fairmont State.

Woodman’s coaching career began in the high school ranks at North Marion in Farmington, West Virginia from 1999 through 2003. He was an LSU graduate assistant for Nick Saban and Les Miles for the next three seasons. In 2007, he was a graduate assistant with Florida State and became the running backs coach at NCAA Division 2 California University of Pennsylvania. In 2009 and 2010, he was Concord’s (NCAA D2) wide receivers and special teams coach and then moved to Bowie State (NCAA D2) for two seasons in the offensive coordinator role.

In 2013, he became the head coach of Fairmont State. In 10 seasons with the Fighting Falcons, he went 60-47 overall and 55-43 in the Mountain East Conference. Woodman led the Falcons to the program’s first Division 2 Playoff appearance in 2016 where they lost to Indiana University of Pennsylvania 62-13. Woodman had 5 winning seasons with Fairmont State and had the second-most wins in program history behind Deacon Duvall’s 125.

Woodman will replace the former head coach Rob Tenyer who spent over 20 years with Morehead State including the final 11 seasons as head coach of the Eagles from 2013 through 2023. Tenyer finished 47-73 overall and recorded three winning seasons.
