Shaheen Holloway, a native Pirate, followed head coach Kevin Willard to Seton Hall in March of 2010. The former Pirates' star is in his eighth year with Willard and his fifth as associate head coach at his alma mater. Holloway spent the prior three years as an assistant coach on Willard's staff at Iona College.

Holloway has been instrumental in establishing a new foundation for the program to restore the winning tradition he contributed to as a player. His primary responsibilities include, overseeing the Pirates' recruiting efforts, managing the player development program, and serving as a team liaison for Pirate Blue.

Since returning to The Hall, the program has experienced a multitude of success both on and off the court. The Pirates have had six All-BIG EAST selections and 15 BIG EAST Academic All-Stars. As a team, Seton Hall earned its first national ranking in 12 years, while also posting the first 20-win season and notching the first postseason victory in nearly a decade.

Most notably, Holloway mentored former Pirate standout Jordan Theodore who experienced tremendous development after only one year under his tutelage. Theodore was named to the 2012 All-BIG EAST Second Team after breaking the program's single season-assist record that stood for nearly 50 years.

An administrative assistant for head coach Bobby Gonzalez' Seton Hall team, Holloway was responsible for coordinating film exchange, analyzing game tapes and assisting with scouting of opponents. He supervised fall conditioning as well as the year-round weight training program. Holloway was also responsible for academic progress reports for team members as well as the organization of all aspects of team travel for the Pirates.

Holloway made his way back to his alma mater after serving as an assistant coach at the high school level at Bloomfield Tech. He was a four-year standout at Seton Hall from 1996-00 and helped lead his team to the 2000 NCAA Sweet Sixteen. A native of Queens, Holloway was a McDonald's All-American who played at St. Patrick's High School in Elizabeth, N.J.

Holloway, the Pirates' all-time assist leader with 681, scored 1,588 points during his career, the 13th highest total in school history. He also recorded 231 steals (3rd all-time) and hit 185 three-pointers (7th all-time) in 116 games. In 2000, he was named the BIG EAST's Most Improved Player, while earning all-league status three times and All-Metropolitan accolades in each of his four seasons at Seton Hall.

After his collegiate success Holloway played professionally in England for the Chester Jets and London Towers as well as a season in Ulm, Germany and Istanbul, Turkey. Back in the U.S. he had stints with the Brooklyn Kings of the USBL and Newark, Las Vegas and Chicago in the ABA. He was invited to three preseason NBA camps with the Knicks, Nets and Golden State Warriors.

In June of 2012, Holloway became the 53rd former men's basketball player to be inducted into the Seton Hall Athletics Hall of Fame.
