Orlando Antigua May Hire Brother at USF, Opening Up Spot on Seton Hall Staff
ARLINGTON, Texas — New South Florida coach Orlando Antigua may hire his brother, Oliver, as an assistant on his staff, which would then open up a spot on Kevin Willard’s staff at Seton Hall for Lincoln coach Dwayne “Tiny” Morton.
“We’d love to have that opportunity if it works,” Orlando said of hiring his brother, according to the AP.
Orlando Antigua landed the USF job on Tuesday and will take over that program as soon as Kentucky’s run ends here in the Final Four. The Wildcats face Wisconsin Saturday night in the national semifinals.
Willard is expected to add Morton to his staff and if Oliver Antigua departed for USF, Morton could slide right in alongside Shaheen Holloway and Freddie Hill.
Morton coached both McDonald’s All-American Isaiah Whitehead and Desi Rodriguez at Lincoln High School. Oliver Antigua recruited another incoming Seton Hall player, forward Angel Delgado.
