Seton Hall has hired Kevin Willard to take over as the Head Coach of the Men’sBasketball team. Friar fans may remember Willard from his trip to The Dunk this past season.  Willard is the three year coach of Iona College out of the MAAC.  In his three years he was able to turn around the losing Gaels team he inherited and was given MAAC Coach of the Year Honors this season.  Willard signed a 5 year deal with a total compensation package of about $1 million per year.  Willard who has close ties to both Rick Pitino and Lou Lamoriello is only 34, but is the foreseeable future for the Seton Hall Pirates.  So congratulations to Kevin Willard, now we have to wait and see what will happen with the other coaching vacancies and DePaul and more interestingly St. John’s.  We will stay updated.
