Willard also spent six years as an assistant and associate head coach at the University of Louisville, working under coach Rick Pitino. While at Louisville, the team reached the postseason in each of his six years, including the NCAA Tournament four times and a visit to the Final Four in 2005. Willard also was a coaching associate for the Boston Celtics for four years. He spent three years of his collegiate career playing at Pittsburgh, after playing one year at Western Kentucky.
