It’s the end of an era at the University of Notre Dame.

Women’s Head Basketball Coach Muffet McGraw announced Wednesday that she will be stepping down after three decades with the school, an incredible run by any metric.

 

McGraw has a record of 905–272 over 32 seasons, and led the Fighting Irish to nine Final Fours, seven championship game appearances, and a pair of National Championships in 2001 and 2018.

The 64-year-old McGraw became the 13th woman inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2017. She won 936 games, with 842 coming at Notre Dame.

McGraw is one of five Division I men’s or women’s basketball coaches with at least 930 wins, nine Final Fours and multiple titles.

Niele Ivey, from the Irish Class of 2000, has been announced as the new Women’s Basketball Coach. She had been an assistant coach for the NBA Memphis Grizzlies.
