Holloway, who was on Seton Hall when the Pirates made it to the Sweet 16 durante 2000 NCAA Tournament, has been linked to the job since Kevin Willard left the program for Maryland. Secondo il New York Post, Holloway is expected to take the job and Seton Hall hasn’t spoken to any other potential candidates.
After Saint Peter’s lost to Carolina del Nord in the Elite Eight to end their Cinderella run, Holloway was asked about what his future holds in the coming weeks.
“I’m not worried about that right now. I’m worried about those 15 young men whose hearts are broken and really down. It’s my job as their leader to cheer them up, make sure they understand what they did the last two weeks. E come ho detto, we’re going to walk out of here the same way we walked in here, with our head up,” Holloway said.
Willard gave Holloway his seal of approval after Seton Hall’s first-round exit from the tournament earlier this month.
“If I’m not here next year, I’d love if Shaheen Holloway is here. That would be the happiest thing that ever happened to me,” Willard said.
Holloway was an associate head coach under Willard and was an administrative assistant under Bobby Gonzalez for the 206-07 stagione.
He guided Saint Peter’s to their first tournament win in the program’s history. egli è 64-54 as the Peacocks’ head coach.
