Rothstein: Oliver Antigua to join Seton Hall staff

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Former Manhattan assistant and St. Raymond (N.Y.) head coach Oliver Antigua is set to join Seton Hall's staff on September 1st. The position has been vacant since Dan McHale (Minnesota) and Chris Pompey (CS Northridge) left earlier this off-season.

The hire comes as no surprise since the link was sniffed out immediately following Seton Hall's commitment from Top-75 power forward Angel Delgado (Huntington Prep, W. Va.) last Friday. Delgado has ties to Antigua from the Dominican Republic national team, where he is an assistant coach. Oliver Antigua is the brother of Orlando, who is an assistant coach at Kentucky and the head coach of the Dominican Republic national team.

Antigua was the head coach at St. Raymond high school for ten seasons prior to accepting an assistant coaching position at Manhattan last June. Oliver led St. Raymond to a 186-100 overall record and  three city championships from 2003-2012.

If Antigua is able to follow up on his recruiting pull put on display by bringing Angel Delgado to Seton Hall, plus add in-game coaching ability shown on his head coaching resume, he will become the much needed third recruiting assistant that Seton Hall fans have been begging for all summer.
