Brey said decision to stay at Notre Dame was easy call
Question of the Day
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Notre Dame coach Mike Brey is staying with the Irish, and his reasoning is pretty simple.
“This is my home,” he said Monday.
Brey was thought to be a candidate to replace Gary Williams at Maryland, given his strong ties to the area. He has been at Notre Dame for 11 years, but he was born in Bethesda and attended and played at DeMatha High School, where he was later an assistant coach.
Brey, 52, who won The Associated Press coach of the year award after leading the Irish to a 27-7 record this past season, said he never interviewed for the Maryland job and did not have a meeting to discuss it because he knew he wanted to stay in South Bend.
“There really wasn’t much to it, other than some speculation from down there and I understand that with a coaching search,” Brey said.
“I didn’t need to meet with anyone on this because I knew where my frame of mind was. I’m flattered that they would inquire, but that’s kind of where it ended.”
“When you go to their basketball camps when you are 10 years old, and when you have grown up around Maryland basketball and Lefty Driesell, certainly it tugs at your heart,” he said.
“Maryland also holds a special place in my heart because half of my family and half of my wife’s family graduated from there. But I feel really good about the momentum of our program here at Notre Dame. I mean, we have worked 11 years to get into this position and get some momentum. I really like where our recruiting is and I am honored to have ND next to my name.”
