Buzz: Sean Kearney to Take Over at Holy Cross

Posted by rtmsf on July 2nd, 2009

Holy Cross is set to announce its replacement for Ralph Willard today, naming Sean Kearney, a current assistant coach on Mike Brey’s Notre Dame staff, as the new head coach at the school.  Willard left his highly successful post there in June to become an assistant for Rick Pitino’s Louisville squad, and he’ll be replaced by, in an odd coincidence, another former Pitino assistant (Providence ’87).  Kearney will find that the cupboard at the premier job in the Patriot League is far from bare, as four starters return for a team expected to compete for a conference title next season.  Seems like a good hire, as Mike Brey said, for Kearney to go from a private, academically-oriented Catholic school like ND to another like HC makes sense and is a “good fit.”
