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.
