Also yesterday, Holy Cross decided against hiring Pitt associate head coach Tom Herrion for its head coaching position. The Crusaders hired Notre Dame assistant Sean Kearney instead. Herrion had been one of three finalists for the job that was vacated when Ralph Willard, a former Pitt head coach, left to become Rick Pitino's top assistant at Louisville.
You don't like to see this happen, but losing Herrion would have been tough as he's a solid recruiter. You've got to think it's just a matter of time before he's hired somewhere.
