Shaheen Holloway exits St. Peter’s Basilica towards Seton Hall

Shaheen Holloway couldn’t have written a better March: MAAC title. Elite Eight. New job in a high profile conference.

One of March Madness’ big stars is returning home, returning to his roots at Seton Hall as the next head coach. As anticipated after weeks of rumors, the Big East School made it official on Wednesday, announcing that it had hired Holloway to replace Kevin Willard as the new head coach.

Holloway, 46, is returning to South Orange – where he was a star player and successful assistant coach – after guiding Saint Peter’s on a magical run to the Elite Eight and leading the MAAC school to its first three NCAA tournament wins in program history Has .

As word spread that Willard was going to Maryland, it became clear that Holloway was the obvious successor. Willard fought for Holloway — shortly after the Pirates’ NCAA tournament loss to TCU — and so did former Seton Hall star Isaiah Whitehead.

Although the terms of the deal were not immediately known, Holloway is believed to be in for a substantial raise. Sources say he recently took a pay cut at Saint Peter’s after earning approximately $300,000 per season due to financial constraints imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Willard earned a base salary of $2.4 million last season, it said.

The school has not spoken to any other candidate in the nine days between Willard taking the job in Maryland and hiring Holloway, a popular figure in New York City and New Jersey.
