Assistant coach Joe Holladay will move from his position on the North Carolina bench to the administrative director of basketball operations role on the Tar Heels' staff for the 2009-10 season, school sports information director Steve Kirschner confirmed Wednesday.
Holladay has been a member of coach Roy Williams' staff for 16 seasons, including seven at North Carolina. He will enter a three-year rotation along with assistants C.B. McGrath and Jerod Haase. In any given season, one of the three will serve as operations director and the other two will work on the bench alongside Williams.
Previously, McGrath and Haase rotated between the operations and bench coaching positions on a yearly basis. Another assistant, Steve Robinson, will remain on the bench each season.
"As Coach [Williams] said, we just have a deeper bench now," Kirschner said.
Holladay, 61, joined Williams at Kansas before the 1993-94 season after 23 years as a high school coach, teacher and administrator.
