Holloway's reputation took a dip after he presided over Leicester's relegation to League One in 2007-08.
He was shown the door by the Foxes and was out of the game for 12 months but is now raring to go following his recent appointment as Seasiders boss.
"I can't wait to get started," said Holloway, whose side began pre-season training on Wednesday.
"I have been out of work for a year and I can't wait to get back on to the grass and get to work with this group of players.
"I have watched all the DVD's and read all the scout reports and spoke to my staff at length on what we need and what we need to do."
