Latest Mike Brey Items
When he leaves his home on a cul-de-sac in a secluded Syracuse suburb, coach Jim Boeheim has to drive past the house belonging to his former assistant, Bernie Fine, just across the street.
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey was moments removed from watching Maryland's Terrell Stoglin scorch the Fighting Irish for 31 points Sunday. Still, he knew another player did just as much to sink his team in the BB&T Classic.
Terrell Stoglin was chafing. Nick Faust's foul trouble forced the sophomore to handle Maryland's point guard chores for nearly the entire second half Sunday. In turn, few plays were being called for Stoglin to do what he loves so much, and he pointed it out to coach Mark Turgeon.
Kevin Anderson, Maryland's rookie athletic director, does things differently, you have to admit. In January, he hired a football coach from a basketball school (Randy Edsall, formerly of Connecticut), and Monday he hired a basketball coach from a football school (Mark Turgeon, late of Texas A&M).
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey is staying with the Irish, and his reasoning is pretty simple.
He can X-and-O with the nation's best hoops tacticians. He can recruit against anyone in the country. He can use his homegrown roots and local connections to dominate the D.C. area's fertile hotbed. The only thing Todd Bozeman can't do is give big-time athletic directors like Maryland's Kevin Anderson the courage to hire him.
Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams, who retired Thursday after 22 years at Maryland, took a program from under the cloud Len Bias' cocaine-induced death and NCAA sanctions to one that boasts a national championship and one of the largest on-campus arenas in the country.
Jimmer Fredette became a one-name star in his senior season at BYU.
Mike Brey is The Associated Press' coach of the year after guiding Notre Dame to second place in the Big East and a No. 5 ranking in the final poll.
