CBKB: Iona's Willard hired by Seton Hall

AP Sports Writer

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. Kevin Willard of Iona has agreed to become Seton Hall's new coach.

A person familiar the hiring tells The Associated Press that the 34-year-old has reached a deal to replace Bobby Gonzalez, who was fired on March 17 after a 19-win season.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the university isn't expected to announce the agreement until Monday.

Willard led Iona to a 21-10 record this season.

The hiring was first reported by the Daily News of New York and MyCentralJersey.com.
