Mike Brey isn’t done coaching. In fact, he’s going to coach at a level he never has. The highest level of basketball in the world, that is.
The Atlanta Hawks are hiring Brey to their staff for 2023-24, per multiple reports. The South Bend Tribune was first to report the news. ESPN reported that Brey’s role has not been finalized and is not expected to be until after the season. The Hawks are the Eastern Conference’s No. 7 seed and trail the Boston Celtics 1-0 in a first-round playoff series.
The Hawks are coached by Quin Snyder, whose final two years at Duke (1987-89) were Brey’s first two as a Blue Devils’ assistant coach. Snyder, the Utah Jazz’s head coach from 2014-22, was hired in late February.
Brey stepped aside in March after a 23-year run at Notre Dame and left with a school-record 483 wins. The Irish went 11-21 in his final season. He reportedly interviewed for the head-coaching job at South Florida and was an early stage candidate at Georgetown. He told ESPN in mid-March he was not offered the USF job and would pursue a television career.
