Holm played college basketball at Vermont before a successful pro career

Chris Holm, who starred on the men's basketball team at the University of Vermont before enjoying a successful eight-year professional playing career, completed his second season at George Washington, and first as an assistant coach, in 2016-17.

Holm spent his first season as the assistant director of operations, assisting in all facets of the day-to-day operations of the basketball program. He also served as the team's video coordinator, spearheaded the program's community outreach and assisted with on-campus official visits. He was elevated to an assistant coach prior to the 2016-17 season.

At Vermont, Holm enjoyed his best collegiate season in 2006-07. That season, the 6-foot-10 Holm ranked second in the country with 12.2 rebounds per game and his 401 total boards stand as a single-season school record. The Catamounts, who led the nation in rebounding that season, went 25-8 and advanced to the Postseason NIT as Holm also chipped in 10.6 points per game.

Following his collegiate playing career, Holm received a camp invite from the Charlotte Hornets before heading overseas to begin an eight-year professional career.

Holm had stints in Spain and Bosnia before going to Japan where he spent seven seasons becoming the leading rebounder in the history of the Basketball Japan League. In his final season (2014-15), Holm -- who was a three-time All-Star -- led the Shiga Lakestars to the Final Four of the League Playoffs, grabbing 9.5 rebounds and scoring 7.4 points per game.

After graduating from Green Valley High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, Holm played two seasons at Atlantic 10 member Rhode Island before transferring to Vermont in 2004, where he earned a bachelor's degree in history in 2007. He and his wife, Tara, have two sons: Croix and Cruz; and a daughter, Kylan.
