St. Viator High School announced Wednesdsay that Quin Hayes would take the lead of the school's boys basketball program.

"We are thrilled to bring Quin in as our new head basketball coach," St. Viator athletic director Marty Jennings said in a statement. "His love and passion for St. Viator was evident in every conversation with him."

Hayes served as an assistant to former head coach Mike Howland for the last two years, and has also coached the sophomore team.

Hayes is a 1995 graduate of St. Viator and excelled as a shooting guard, especially from 3-point range. Among the honors he netted as a player, Hayes was named East Suburban Catholic Conference MVP along with Daily Herald all-area team selections.

Hayes went on to play forward four years at the Division I program at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, N.J., before playing one year professionally in France in 2000.

Before coaching at St. Viator, Hayes served as an assistant coach at Hoffman Estates (2010-2011) and at York (2011-2012).

"We believe his experiences as a player, coach and alum will aid in the growth and development of our basketball program and the students of St. Viator," said Jennings.
