In his time at GW, Holmes helped orchestrate a complete overhaul of the Colonials' offense and defense.

Holmes arrived at George Washington in 2017, following a one-year stop as an assistant coach at NC State. During that 2016 season, he helped lead the Wolfpack to a 20-win campaign. Prior to that, he spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons as North Carolina Central's head coach, in addition to a pair of assistant coaching stints at the University of Central Florida (2012-13) and Stetson (2011).
