Ohio University assistant Chris Holtmann is set to return to Gardner-Webb.
According to sources, an official announcement is expected early this week.
Holtmann, 38, spent five seasons at the school under Rick Scruggs -- who was fired back in May after 15 years at the helm.
Gardner-Webb won 35 games in a two-year span in 2005-06 with Holtmann, who was the associate head coach the last four seasons he was at the school, on the staff.
Holtmann was selected from a group that included Belmont assistant Casey Alexander, ex-Charlotte assistant Rob Moxley and Virginia director of basketball operations Brad Soucie.
