Sean Kearney is the new Holy Cross men's basketball coach, the college announced this morning. Kearney, 49, has spent the last nine seasons as associate head coach at the University of Notre Dame. Before that, he was an assistant at Delaware for eight years.

The HC post will be Kearney's first head coaching position.

Kearney will be introduced at a press conference tomorrow morning.

"We had a lot of good candidates that we liked a lot," Holy Cross director of athletics Dick Regan said. "At the end of the day, we felt Sean was the best person to lead the program forward."

Kearney, Pitt associate head coach Tom Herrion and Holy Cross graduate Rod Baker were all on campus this week for final interviews.

Kearney will replace Ralph Willard, who resigned last month to become the top assistant at the University of Louisville.
