NEW: Bill Carmody Named Holy Cross Basketball Head Coach
Friday, March 20, 2015
"I am excited about the opportunity to become the head coach at Holy Cross, and I look forward to bringing the program back to the top of the Patriot League," Carmody said.
During the 2014-2015 season, Carmody serves as special assistant/advisor to the head coach at Fairfield University. Prior to that, Carmody spent 13 seasons at Northwestern as the head coach and led the Wildcats to 192 wins, the second most victories in school history.
"He is a proven winner and his wealth of experience as a head coach at other rigorous academic institutions makes him an outstanding fit for our program and community.
Carmody is a native of Spring Lake, N.J. and graduated from Union in 1975 with a bachelors degree in history. As a player, Carmody led Union to a 59-11 record in three seasons as a starter.
Carmody has been nationally recognized as one of the top coaches in the college game and was named top offensive coach in college basketball by Sports Illustrated.
"Bill Carmody is one of the brightest basketball minds in the country. When it comes to teaching the game of basketball, there are few in his class. The Crusaders are certainly in good hands with Bill in Charge," said Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan.
Holy Cross last season
Last season, Holy Cross went 14-16 overall and 8-10 conference making it to the quarterfinals of the Patriot League tournament before losing to Bucknell 90-83 in Overtime.
