Rob Holloway joined the Valparaiso University men’s basketball program prior to the 2018-19 season and enters his second season as an assistant coach in 2019-20. He helped guide Valpo to 15 victories in his first season on staff.

Most recently prior to arriving at Valpo, Holloway spent two seasons (2016-18) on the coaching staff at Eastern Illinois University. While at EIU, Holloway helped coach a Second Team All-OVC honoree in Montell Goodwin and an All-Newcomer Team honoree in Mack Smith in 2017-18. He was instrumental in bringing in highly-rated recruits to the Charleston campus as well, as Smith was an Indiana All-Star and Cam Burrell was a First Team All-State selection in Illinois.

Prior to his two years at EIU, Holloway served one season as an assistant coach under veteran head coach Bob Sundvold at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Before heading to UMSL, Holloway spent three years (2012-15) as the head coach at Kennedy-King College in Chicago. During his tenure, the program posted 48 wins and boasted six All-Region performers, including 2015 NJCAA All-Region 4 selection Dewan White. White also earned the NJCAA Superior Academic Achievement Award in 2015 afer recording a GPA between 3.8 and 3.99. Holloway was previously an assistant coach on staff at Kennedy-King College before ascending to the head coaching position, helping the program to a pair of NJCAA Region 4 runner-up finishes in 2009 and 2012.

Holloway is a 2005 graduate of Eastern Illinois University and worked in private business for several years before embarking on a career as a basketball coach.
