Seton Hall has chosen Iona's Tony Bozzella as its next women's basketball coach. A source with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press Tuesday that Bozzella was picked to replace Anne Donovan and will be introduced at a press conference on Wednesday. The source asked not to be identified because neither Seton Hall nor Iona has confirmed the hiring. It marks the third time in three years that the Big East school has turned to Iona to hire a basketball coach or athletic director. Kevin Willard left Iona in 2010 to take over the Pirates' men's team. Seton Hall hired Iona athletic director Patrick Lyons the following year, and now Lyons has signed Bozzella after 11 seasons at Iona. The Gaels went 20-13 this season. A 1988 graduate of Seton Hall, Bozzella arrived at Iona in 2002, inheriting a program that had struggled through 20 consecutive losing seasons. He notched three 20-win seasons.
