"Basketball and coaching are my passions and there have been so many wonderful memories that I've collected in my time at Notre Dame, and earlier in my career at Lehigh and St. Joseph's, and all of those have been due to the hard work of so many incredible student-athletes and assistant coaches through the years," the 55-year-old said.
