The two names became synonymous with each other: Larry Holley and William Jewell College. After all, Holley was the school’s basketball coach for 40 years, compiling 916 career wins, which made him the ninth-winningest coach in college basketball history at any level when he retired in 2019. He is the winningest coach in the state of Missouri. He earned 15 Coach of the Year awards, including the NAIA national coach of the year in 1996, and the 2018 Kansas City Sports Commission coach of the year.
Last year he was selected as the “Blue KC Coach with Character” honoree for the month of April.
This week we talk about Holley’s leadership background, how he and William Jewell have been intertwined, how he used to get the most out of his players, and have him take a swing at our “7 Questions.”
