Notre Dame Men’s Basketball: Mike Brey Gets 10-Year Contract Extension


Notre Dame men’s basketball Head Coach, Mike Brey, is here to stay. As he and the University agreed on a contract extension.

Sources told The Chicago Tribune that the length of the contract is 10 years. Financials of the contract have not been released.

One would imagine that this move will keep Brey through the end of his coaching career. He has been coaching the Irish for 12 years now.

The 3-time Big East Coach-of-the-Year has brought back ND basketball since taking over. Compiling a 124-75 record in league play, Mike Brey has surely risen this program to the next level.

Although the Irish were knocked out of the 1st round of the March Madness Tournament, Notre Dame earned its 6th straight 20-win season. Brey returns all five starters from last season while adding transfer center Garrick Sherman and top 50 freshman Cameron Biedscheid to a squad that will be among the Big East favorites next season.

Rumors of Mike Brey leaving became louder when Gary William’s left Maryland. Being a Maryland himself, it made sense if Brey left. But he stayed in South Bend and is committed to getting this team to its first Sweet 16 appearance since 2003
