SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame's Mike Brey, the Big East basketball coach of the year the past two seasons, has agreed to a two-year contract extension to remain with the Irish through the 2014-15 season.
``As his peers have acknowledged by selecting him coach of the year the past two seasons, Mike has built one of the top men's basketball programs in the Big East Conference,'' the Rev. John Jenkins, Notre Dame's president, said in a statement Monday. ``His quiet confidence and class are a perfect fit for Notre Dame, and I am sure that we'll enjoy still more success in coming years.''
The 49-year-old Brey has coached the Irish to five 20-win seasons in his eight years as coach, including five NCAA tournament appearances, and has a 167-86 record. He guided the Irish to a 25-8 record last season, the third-most wins in a season in school history, and this season will return all but one player.
``I love the momentum of our program and the facility improvements that we are making at the Joyce Center,'' Brey said.
Brey's career record as head coach is 266-138 in 13 seasons, including five years at Delaware before coming to Notre Dame.
Last week, Notre Dame also signed women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw to a two-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.
