KWC Welcomes New Head Coach Happy Osborne

ky weslyan panthersOWENSBORO, Ky, (11/12/13) – Kentucky Wesleyan College welcomes new Head Men’s Basketball Coach Happy Osborne to Owensboro. Osborne will be taking over the 20 – 8 Panthers, that were previously coached by Todd Lee.
 
“Coaching at KWC is a once and lifetime opportunity,” Coach Osborne said.
 
Osborne pointed out the great tradition at KWC. The Panthers have won eight Division II National Championships, although they have not raised a banner in 12 years. He is excited about being a part of a college that is in a city with potential to grow.
 
“With everything happening downtown, Owensboro is really starting to thrive,” Osborne said. “We want students to know that the city is only going to get better and this is a great place to go to school.”
 
When asked about the expectation for the up incoming season he said, “Our fans need to understand it takes time. I am working with brand new staff and our players have to get use to a brand new system.”
 
Happy understands that he cannot bring KWC back to the elite level alone; he wants student section to be big. More importantly, he wants Owensboro to come support the Panthers.
 
There are two big ticket changes to bring back the excitement at Owensboro’s Sportscenter:
 
1. Kids 8th grade and under get in for free.
2. All KWC students get in for free, if they show their student IDs.
 
The Panthers split their home openers and return to the Sportscenter Tuesday, Nov. 19th, to take on the University of Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles.
