Seton Hall will hire Iona coach Kevin Willard as the successor to Bobby Gonzalez, the school confirmed on Sunday.
Willard will be introduced at a press conference on Wednesday.
Willard, whose father, Ralph Willard, is a veteran coach, has turned the Gaels around in just three seasons. He was hired in 2007 after a 2-28 season. This season, Iona was 21-10, 12-6 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, to finish third in the conference and Kevin Willard was named coach of the year in the league.
Willard is 45-49, including 27-27 in the MAAC, during his Iona tenure.
