SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame's Mike Brey, the Big East coach of the year, signed a two-year contract extension Thursday to remain with the Irish through the 2012-13 season.
Notre Dame was 24-8 last season after going 16-14 the previous year. The Irish went 11-5 in the Big East to match the school record for conference victories, and their 23 regular-season wins were the most since 1985-86.
``Mike is a highly gifted and talented leader, who has a great sense of what it takes to be extremely competitive within the Big East Conference, as well as nationally,'' Notre Dame athletic director Kevin White said.
Notre Dame's No. 17 ranking in the final Associated Press poll was its highest since it was 10th in 1986. The Irish lost 74-64 to Winthrop in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Brey has a 142-78 record in seven seasons with the Irish and is the only coach in the program's 102-year history to lead his first three teams to consecutive 20-win seasons and NCAA tournament berths. His career record is 241-130, including five years at Delaware before coming to Notre Dame.
