CHAPEL HILL – A staple of the UNC Basketball program—Joe Holladay— is retiring after 20 years and 594 wins as a member of Roy Williams‘ staff with Carolina and Kansas.

Holladay recently finished his fourth season as Director of Basketball Operations after a 16-year stint as assistant coach.

Former Vanderbilt assistant coach Brad Frederick, who played for the Tar Heels from 1996-99, is Carolina’s new Director of Basketball Operations.

Holladay, 65, came to Chapel Hill in April 2003 and was part of the Tar Heel staff for 10 seasons, during which time UNC won two NCAA championships, played in three Final Fours, won six Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championships and two ACC Tournament titles. The Tar Heels amassed an overall record of 282-78 over the last 10 years, finishing in the Top 10 in the final AP poll seven times.
