The Redhawks have hired Brad Korn to be their next head basketball coach, according to Director of Athletics Brady Barke.

The seventh head coach in SEMO’s NCAA Division I men’s basketball era, Korn agreed to a five-year contract. It will run through April 30, 2025.

Prior to Kansas State, he spent eight years at Southern Illinois, including his final six years as a full-time assistant under Lowery.

A native of Plano, Ill., he helped the Salukis through one of their greatest periods of success from 1999 to 2004.

Korn earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Southern Illinois in 2004 and earned credits toward a master’s degree in Sports Studies.

He and his wife, Kristin, have two daughters, Brielyn and Ashtyn.
