Holt Named Men's Basketball Video Coordinator
Lincoln - University of Nebraska Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tim Miles announced Wednesday that Matt Holt has been named video coordinator for the Husker basketball program. Holt comes to Nebraska after spending three seasons as the Director of Basketball Operations at Northeastern. He takes over the role as Gregory Eaton was promoted to Director of Basketball Operations for the Huskers earlier this summer.
“We are excited to add Matt to our staff,” Nebraska Coach Tim Miles said. “He had the opportunity to work under two excellent mentors in Bill Coen at Northeastern and Bob Walsh, who is now at Maine. His duties outside of video, whether it was in operations, on the floor coaching or recruiting gave Matt a birds-eye view of a program and what coaches need. I know Matt will hit the ground running and it will be a seamless transition. He is a very bright young man who will do an outstanding job for the Huskers, and we are looking forward to a great season with a lot of exciting, winning basketball.”
During his tenure at Northeastern, Holt served in a variety of roles, as the program won at least 18 games in two of the last three seasons and made the 2015 NCAA Tournament under longtime coach Bill Coen. Some of his duties included video analysis for opponent and self-scouting, assisting the coaching staff in coordinating opponent scouting, helping to coordinate and monitor academic progress, as well as handling team travel and working with campus entities to coordinate team events such as Midnight Madness and Alumni Day. During his three seasons, Northeastern had six All-Colonial Athletic Association selections, including 2017 CAA player of the Year T.J. Williams.
In addition to his three years of experience in basketball administration, Holt also served as an assistant coach for three seasons. During his two-year stint at New Haven, Holt recruited prospective student-athletes and facilitated player development and game preparation. He aided in the development of New Haven's Eric Anderson, who earned NE10 Defensive Player of the Year honors in both seasons Holt was an assistant. Holt also coordinated team travel, as well as community events such as youth camps, coaching clinics, and alumni weekends.
Holt spent the 2011-12 season at Rhode Island College, where he assisted in scouting opponents. He was responsible for organizing daily team schedules, and worked closely with the compliance office to support academic progress for basketball student-athletes.
Holt, who graduated with a journalism degree from Northeastern in 2011, served as the head senior manager for the men's basketball team as an undergrad, and helped coordinate team video needs and team travel logistics. He also received a master's degree in management of sports industries from New Haven in December 2013.
