Tahj Holden Promoted to Assistant Coach at Monmouth

After serving as the Director of Basketball Operations at Monmouth University since 2008, Tahj Holden (1999-2003) has been promoted to Assistant Coach. Holden will be heavily involved in game preparation and recruiting, according to the Asbury Park Press (excerpt):
Holden, the Director of Basketball Operations for Monmouth the last two seasons, was recently moved from that limited position to full time assistant and recruiter as part of the revamping of head coach Dave Calloway’s staff.

"Being out on the road recruiting, the time and effort that takes, is a lot different than anything I’ve done as Director of Basketball Operations," Holden said. [...]

Holden said he hopes his NCAA championship pedigree will make an impression on recruits.

"But some of these kids we’re recruiting weren’t even paying attention to basketball at that point," Holden said. "They were seven eight, years old."
