    Congrats, I knew he had an interview. One thing for sure, he will know one district rival extremely well.

    You say confirmed...by who? Have not seen nor have not heard official announcement to the the HC Community. If the decision was shared with the existing players, so be it as that is understandable. However immediately next the school should have done this officially. Same thing happened with the girls varsity coach hiring. I consider myself pretty involved at the Cross but found out via Blue Grass Preps. Not that I don't consider you a reliable and legitimate news source, LOL, but I should have found it out first from the school officially. Similar to a press release. On the school's website, parent email distribution, and School Facebook page and other social media Outlets. A collaboration of communication from the school. Just extremely disappointed.

    Was he most recently an assistant at Holmes?

    Holy Cross' communication about things like this hasn't always been one if it's strong points - and I would say their presence/use of social media is downright poor. It's a good school, but those are definitely things that they could do to work on improving.

    And for what it's worth, I've found over the years that if @buttels comes on here and says that something has been confirmed, then by gosh it's been confirmed. There are plenty of folks in news media who are better served not to reveal sources, so if he chooses not to reveal his source here, so be it, but I'm confident beyond the shadow of a doubt that he has confirmed this.

    He sent out an e-mail looking for summer games and signed it as head coach of Holy Cross. Confirmed with a DM on Twitter.

    Just an FYI. I only post it if it's confirmed.

    Yes, was varsity assistant under Coach Listerman at Holmes, was at Grant County before that. He will do a good job at Holy Cross.

    In no way was I questioning the validity of the information...hell I gotta get the information from somewhere...but I am just extremely disappointed with how I received it...again not your fault. And by the way, thanks for letting us know.
