Mike Brey Reportedly A Candidate To Be New Maryland Basketball Coach After Gary Williams' Retirement

Now that the news of Gary Williams' retirement is official, the conversation will immediately turn to which man should replace him. We noted that assistant coach Robert Ehsan will be the acting head coach in the meantime, but it's hard to believe he's a serious candidate given that he only graduated college in 2005. One name that has already surfaced is Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey.

Via Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports and MSG:

Sources insist that Maryland is likely to target Notre Dame's Mike Brey to fill their head coaching vacancy - deep roots in DC area.    

Brey has compiled a 238-120 record in 11 years at Notre Dame. He originally graduated from DeMatha in the late 1970s and also spent five years as the head coach at Delaware. The Fighting Irish finished as the second-best team in the hyper-competitive Big East last season, but were bounced by Florida State in the Round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament.
