Coach Walters recently announced that Kevin Hanlon will be the newest member of the Montreat Men's Basketball coaching staff. "Kevin's going to be a great asset to our program. He understands our expectations, he's been a part of the program as a player, and he has the gift of leadership and teaching." Says Coach Walters. Hanlon, a Montreat College 2010 graduate, led last year's team in shooting percentage at just under 38%. Walters' adds, "What I appreciated so much about Kevin as a player was the fact that he new his abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, and stayed within what he could do. As he transitions into a coach, I think he will help players understand their strengths and weaknesses while helping them stay within their abilities as well". Kevin has somewhat of a family tradition with Montreat Basketball. His oldest brother Sean played for Bill Robinson from 2001-2006 and his middle brother Patrick, played from 2002-2007. Kevin, like Patrick, moved straight into coaching directly after his playing career.
Kevin graduated from Montreat with a Business Administration degree focusing in the area of Management. He was heavily involved in leading worship with the chapel band and was a part of the leadership team with FCA. "I'm ecstatic about the opportunity to not only stay at Montreat but also have the privilege of moving into coaching so quickly. I'm looking forward to transitioning from captain on the floor to coaching on the sidelines" says Hanlon.
