After the way the 2022-23 season has gone for Notre Dame, it was hardly a surprise when news of Mike Brey’s impending retirement broke on Thursday night. Notre Dame will play out the stretch for the year and be on the search for a new men’s basketball coach for the first time since the summer of 2000.
We’ll discuss potential replacements in the days and weeks to come but first we’ll look back at Brey’s incredible run at Notre Dame. Brey won more games as Notre Dame’s head coach than anyone who previously held the post and led the Irish to back-to-back Elite 8 appearances in 2015 and 2016.
News broke of Brey’s plans to step away on Thursday night and understandably a lot of the Notre Dame and college basketball communities shared their reactions on social media. Here are just a few of the best of those.
