Shaheen Holloway has left Saint Peter’s for Seton Hall after helping the Jesuit small school make history, becoming the first No. 15 to reach the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight.
Seton Hall announced the hiring of the 45-year-old man on Wednesday evening.
It was no surprise.
Holloway played in the Pirates of the Big East Conference, and his move to replace Kevin Willard has been a major issue since the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
Holloway moved to Seton Hall in Sweet 16 as a player in 2000, according to the Associated Press.
Holloway, whose Peacocks numbered Kentucky No. 2, No. 7 Murray State and No. 3 before Purdue fell to North Carolina, will get a big boost by making the move.
Holloway is the first graduate of Seton Hall to lead the men’s basketball program since 1953, the news reported.
