Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick Praises Mike Brey, Calls Him The Best Coach In The Country

This season was undoubtedly the best of Mike Brey's tenure at Notre Dame. Brey's Fighting Irish won 32 games—eclipsing his previous high of 27—and made it to the Elite Eight for the first time during his run in South Bend. Brey is beloved in South Bend, but where does he rank among the best coaches in the game? With only two Sweet 16s to his name, most probably wouldn't put Brey up with the Mike Krzyzewskis and John Caliparis of the world. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, however, believes he is the best coach in the country.

Strong words by Swarbrick. We're not sure that we agree, but Brey's 2014-15 was definitely impressive.
