Morgan State University and head men’s basketball coach Kevin Broadushas announced the addition of Keith Goodie to the program as assistant coach. Goodie joins Chretien Lukusa as Broadus’ assistant coaches for the upcoming 2022-23 season.
“We’re extremely excited to have Keith join the Bears,” said Broadus. “His ability to build relationships with players, parents, coaches and administrators align with our staff and culture here at Morgan State. He brings extreme value to our staff and program.”
Goodie comes to Morgan State after serving as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Delaware State University from 2020-21 under head coach Eric Skeeters. Goodie filled in as head coach of the Hornets for the final two games of the 2020-21 season. Delaware State posted its lone MEAC victory of the season, 82-75 over Morgan State with Goodie at the helm in the 2020-21 finale.
During his second year with the program in 2019-20, he helped lead the Hornets to a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament victory for the second straight season, posting a 68-64 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore in an opening round game. Also during the 2019-20 season, the Hornets rallied from a 15-point second half deficit to upset defending MEAC champ North Carolina Central 68-66 on a buzzer beater by senior guard John Crosby, a 2019-20 All-MEAC Second Team selection and conference scoring leader. Crosby topped the 30-point mark in three straight games during the season, the first DSU player to accomplish the feat since the 1988-89 campaign.
Goodie’s first year with the Hornets (2018-19) was highlighted by an upset road victory against First State rival Delaware and the team’s first MEAC Tournament win since 2015.
“I am excited and honored to be at such a high-level university and learn under one of the best coaches in the country,” said Goodie. “The culture that coach Broadus continues to build here is special. I look forward to working with a great staff and helping our program achieve a standard of excellence on and off the court.”
Prior to the Hornets, he was a member of Todd Bozeman’s staff at Morgan State from 2007-to-2015. He was the Bears’ Director of Player Development before serving as an assistant coach.
Goodie was on the Morgan State staff during the school’s back-to-back MEAC championship run in 2009 and ’10. The Bears combined for a 50-22 overall record (.694), including a 28-4 mark in MEAC regular season games (.875) in those years. He also helped lead the team to MEAC championship game appearances in 2011, 2013 and 2014.
Before joining the Morgan State staff, Goodie spent nine years as an A.A.U. head coach for the Baltimore Select (1998-2007) where he helped develop and mentor over 50 Division I players, a list that includes Sam Cassell, Carmelo Anthony, Michael Lloyd and MSU’s all-time leading scorer Reggie Holmes.
Goodie was selected to work as a member of the Adidas All-American Camp from 2004-06. He also spent time as a youth coach with the Cherry Hill Recreation Center (1984-97).
Goodie was a standout point guard for the University of the District of Columbia Firebirds. He ranked among the league’s leaders by averaging 19 points, 9 assists and 3.4 steals during senior season. He transferred to UDC from Essex Community College where he was JUCO All-American.
The Baltimore native earned his bachelor’s degree from Morgan State University.
Goodie and his wife, Faye Marie, have two children, Keith Jr. (37) and Keondra Elise (31) and two grandchildren.
