Halloran named DBO at Elon

The Elon University men’s basketball program and head coach Billy Taylor announced the addition of Sean Halloran to the staff. Halloran will serve as the Phoenix’s Director of Basketball Operations.
“Sean exemplifies what this basketball program represents and I am so happy to add him to our staff,” said Taylor. “He knows our program’s mission and core values and carries them out each and every day. That will be essential for our players.
“When Sean signed to play for us at Belmont Abbey five years ago, he made it clear that he wanted to pursue a career in coaching when his playing career was finished,” Taylor added. “Over the last five years, Sean’s heart and passion have never wavered. As coaches, we strive to hire people who are trustworthy, hard-working and all-in. Sean encompasses those things and more. I think he is going to be great!”
Halloran recently completed his basketball playing career this past season at Elon. In his lone season with the Phoenix, the fifth-year graduate student led the maroon and gold in scoring at 13 points per game while also dishing out a team-high 127 assists. The Orlando, Fla., native also knocked down nearly 92 percent of his free throws while scoring in double figures a team-best 26 times.
Halloran also tied a couple of Division I school records for the program. He had 56 steals on the season, tying Scottie Rice’s program mark that was originally set during the 2002-03 campaign. Halloran also dished out 11 assists versus Johnson and Wales last December, matching the Phoenix’s single-game best.
Prior to Elon, Halloran was a four-year standout at Belmont Abbey, where he finished as the all-time leader in assists with 502 and helped lead the Crusaders to back-to-back Conference Carolinas Tournament Championships and three straight NCAA tournament appearances. A two-time honoree on the Conference Carolinas Second Team, he rounded out his senior campaign in 2021-22 with career-highs in scoring (14.4 ppg) and rebounding (3.4 rpg), adding 4.4 apg and 1.5 spg to his totals. In his career, Halloran racked up 1,422 points, putting him in the top-20 in Belmont Abbey’s program history, adding 324 rebounds along the way.
Halloran graduated with his master’s degree at Elon in science and business analytics this past spring and earned his bachelor’s in sport management from Belmont Abbey in 2022.
