Holy Cross head coach Ralph Willard is leaving his current job to become an assistant at Louisville.
"This is obviously one of the most difficult decisions I've had to make in my career, but after much thought and examination I think it is best for the program going forward and for me personally," Willard said in a released statement. "I'm tremendously proud of the student-athletes I have had the privilege to coach here, all they have accomplished and the way they have represented themselves and the school."
Willard will fill the opening at Louisville left by Richard Pitino.
He is now an assistant at Florida.
This development leaves Holy Cross and USC both looking for new head coaches.
