I have yet to meet someone that didn’t rave about what a cool guy Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey is. He’s a beyond likable guy.

Brey did. And we all win.

Day two of the July evaluation period is in the books and the under the radar guys are emerging, the head coaches are in Akron, a power broker pulls a bold move and one hard-working assistant coach was given a not-so-nice gift for a July birthday present. Continue reading
