Notre Dame’s Mike Brey is Coming to Albany, Talks with Big Board Sports

If it’s possible to be one of the best and yet the most underrated coach in college basketball today, Notre Dame’s Mike Brey is it. Why are we talking about and with Brey? Because he’s going to be in Albany in less than 2 weeks supporting the American Cancer Society and Coaches vs Cancer. (For tickets, go to: cvcbasketballalbany.org)

Entering his 18th season in South Bend, Brey has taken the Fighting Irish to the NCAA Tournament 12 times and Notre Dame made back to back trips to the Elite Eight in 2014-’15 and 2015-’16.

That may sound like expected success for a coach of a major program, but when you consider the fact that Mike Brey does all this winning with 4 year players and largely 3 and 4-star recruits, very few McDonald’s All-Americans, it simply vaults his status as one of the best in the business. No one is going to feel sorry for a Notre Dame head coach, but the reality is, year in and year out, Brey gets the most out of the players he recruits. He never leans on the natural talent of a ‘one and done’ or even ‘two and through’ type of player. Brey has developed a system at Notre Dame that has made the Irish a perennial power in the best conference in college basketball; the ACC.
