Watch: Former Notre Dame player bids farewell to Mike Brey

Tonight could very possibly be the last game Mike Brey coaches at Notre Dame.  Although we hope for the Irish to remain in the ACC Tournament for at least a couple of days, the 3-17 mark in conference speaks for itself and expectations aren’t high.

This has been a rough end to a fantastic career for Brey, however.  The 23-year Notre Dame head coach led the Irish to their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 13 years his first season on campus, and in total 13 NCAA Tournament appearances that were highlighted by two trips to the Elite Eight.

A former Notre Dame player on a couple of those early tournament teams, who now works on the ACC Network took time to bid Brey farewell in a produced piece.

Jordan Cornette was a member of Brey’s first true recruiting class and started over 70 games during his career.  Check out

his produced piece titled “Thanks Coach” below:

I’m glad Jordan was able to poke fun at the Grant Hill comment so I didn’t have to.  Here’s to hoping Brey’s stay at Notre Dame lasts at least another night.
