EIU Adds Assistant Coach
According to Hoops247.com, EIU added Rob Holloway to staff as an assistant coach. Rand Chappell, J.R. Reynolds, and Holloway make up staff the underneath EIU Head Coach Jay Spoonhour.
With a young team, EIU finished 13-17 last winter. They did play very well in OVC-play, earning nine victories. Most of the team returns, with the notable exception of Trae Anderson. This will be Coach Spoonhour’s fifth season at the helm. Coach Holloway has ties throughout Illinois and Missouri. Look for him to make a splash recruiting to the Panthers.
Incidentally, EIU is in severe financial trouble, courtesy of the state of Illinois’ floundering finances. For a detailed report, smash this link.
