Yesterday, I mentioned Marquette’s Brett Nelson as a finalist for the job at Holy Cross (Holy Cross Search Update). Today, reports are flying in that he will indeed be named as the Crusaders new head basketball coach.
Nelson has been on the Marquette staff for the past six seasons, and was promoted to associate head coach in 2017. A former All-American player at Florida, Nelson has also had coaching stops at Ball State (2013-14), Drake (2011-13), Arkansas (2010-11) and Marshall (2007-10).
The final two in this search were Nelson, and a current Ivy League head coach.
An official announcement is expected shortly.
