Mike Brey looks to former Notre Dame basketball players to fill assistant jobs

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Coach Mike Brey is looking at former Notre Dame players he coached to fill two assistant jobs that just came open.

The Irish have two openings because Martin Ingelsby, a former Irish player who coached with Brey for 13 seasons, was named Delaware’s head coach Tuesday and Anthony Solomon is moving to Georgetown as an assistant. Solomon coached with Brey for two stints covering 11 seasons.

Brey said he’s excited to be able to bring in new assistants, saying he thinks the current staff had “maxed it out.”

The Irish finished 24-12 last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament regional finals for a second straight season.

Brey said he has a list of four or five former Irish captains with coaching experience that he will look at first.
