Longtime Northern Kentucky basketball coach to retire after season
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Northern Kentucky men's basketball coach Ken Shields will retire after the upcoming season.
The 61-year-old Shields is the school's winningest coach with a 290-155 record in 15 seasons. The Division II school finished as national runner-up in 1996 and 1997, when the team won a school-record 30 games.
"We have had many outstanding teams in my career at NKU, and I have really enjoyed my years at NKU. But I know it's time," Shields said Tuesday.
