Holy Cross hires Marquette assistant Nelson as head coach
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) Holy Cross has named Marquette assistant Brett Nelson its next head coach, replacing the retired Bill Carmody.
Athletic director Marcus Blossom announced the hire Wednesday, less than a month after Carmody retired. The 38-year-old Nelson spent the last five seasons at Marquette, including two as associate head coach.
He helped guide the Golden Eagles to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2016-17 and 2018-19, a second-place finish in the Big East this past season and the NIT quarterfinals in 2017-18.MORE
