Driscoll hired to Loyola men’s basketball staff

Kevin Driscoll was a successful assistant at Holy Cross in the Patriot League, helping them to both the NCAA and CIT tournaments.

Loyola Greyhounds head men’s basketball coach GG Smith has announced the hiring of Kevin Driscoll to his staff as an assistant coach. Driscoll will fill the role that was left vacant after Josh Loeffler became the head coach at Johns Hopkins in May.

“I am looking forward to joining GG (Smith) and the coaching staff at Loyola, to help current and future Greyhounds achieve success on, and off, the court, coach,” Driscoll said in a statement.

Driscoll has a history coaching in the Patriot League, holding an assistant position with the Holy Cross Crusaders from 2014-2016, including the team’s championship and NCAA tournament run in his final season there. He spent last season at NJIT.

“Kevin is a great addition to our program with strong recruiting ties, knowledge of the Patriot League and its programs and excellent basketball acumen,” Smith said in a statement released by the school. “He has coached at a variety of levels, each with considerable success, and his relationships in recruiting will help us continue to tap into top talent in our area and beyond.”

Holy Cross’ 2016 Patriot League championship run was one of the best stories in the country. The Crusaders were just the ninth seed before making a run to earn the league’s automatic qualifier to the NCAA Tournament. Holy Cross then beat Southern University in their NCAA First Four game in Dayton, Ohio. The Crusaders also had 20-win season while Driscoll was on the staff in 2013-14. They went to the Tournament (CIT) and beat Brown for their first national postseason win in nearly 10 years.

Before Holy Cross, Driscoll was the director of the Hoop Group Elite Camp from 2009-2013. It is the world’s largest basketball camp that has more than 3,500 players during the summer and 1,800 in the spring and fall. He also was an assistant coach at the Division III level with Albright from 2006-2009. The Lions were runners-up in the Middle Atlantic Conference twice while h was there. He started his coaching career as the head coach of Hamburg (PA) High School in 2004.

Driscoll is a graduate of Misericordia University, where he was a four-year letter winner and helped the Cougars to a pair of ECAC Division III Postseason Tournament appearances.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
