Brey out at Maryland, too

Notre Dame's Mike Brey is the latest candidate to remove his name from Maryland's coaching search, the Washington Post reported Sunday. Consequently, one of the nation's best jobs will remain open until at least Monday. Where the search will turn next is unclear.

"I don’t believe it’s going to be a long process,” Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson told the paper on Sunday. “We’re doing our due diligence, making sure we’re going to hire the right person. ... We’re just not going to panic and pick somebody who might not be the best fit for Maryland. We’re going to look at the whole person. Here’s what I’m looking for: Someone with most, if not all, of the qualities Gary Williams possessed."

Pittsburgh's Jamie Dixon, Villanova's Jay Wright and Arizona's Sean Miller have also removed their names from consideration, meaning four men who were obvious candidates have essentially passed on the opportunity to succeed Gary Williams -- the legendary coach who retired last Thursday after 22 seasons at the school. Maryland has also reportedly reached out to Butler's Brad Stevens in an informal manner. Stevens, though, rejected the overture, leaving Anderson as the latest in a long line of athletic directors to have trouble filling a high-profile basketball opening.

The Baltimore area IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO AS GOOD A RECRUITING GROUND AS THE NORTHEAST. Great players come out of NYC and Philly all the time. Not to mention the kids that come out of St. Anthonys, St Patricks, St Benedicts, Blair Academy, Paterson Catholic. Jersey is loaded with talent.

The DC area has good basketball, mainly Montrose Christian, and they have talent but you claim it is far better recruiting grounds which is not the case. Look at this years Top 150. 20 players come out of the NE while about 9 come from the DC area and that includes Oak Hill.

Not sure where you get your facts on the DC area being better than the Northeast but you are way off base.

No I am NOT retarded!!!!!!!!!! Are you? What I'm saying is that the Baltimore, D.C. area is a far better recruiting ground. I'm not talking about the kids Maryland has coming in. It's obvious Gary never recruited the kids in that area very well. The combination of the facilities and local recruiting possibilities makes Maryland a far better job than any of those other three. Though I can see your point with all of those 5 star kids that those three schools have coming in!!!!!!!!!

do not believe brey was ever really a canidate, fanbase hates him. name only surfaced because he went to dematha. nobody was going to offer him head coaching job, so him texting ND press was likely just a way at saving face. if md offer came, he would've taken it

I didnt know the Maryland football position was the topic. Clearly the Villanova Football program has a direct relation to this topic.

Clearly MD is not really perceived to be the great program/job Parrish thought.  Especially, none of 3 Big East coaches were interested in moving there.  Wonder how BC is feeling these days?

More prestigious now. Almost guarantted more prestigious in the future. Was NOT more prestigious in the late 70's under Phelps. Don't foget how much Williams raised the profile. If Brey WANTS security he SHOULD stay at ND. Expectations are so much less. His team SHOULD struggle this year and he will be given time at ND he would NOT get at Maryland.

Would someone pleases tell me why so many people think Maryland is such a great job?  We all know that the Big East is the best conf. in the land and Notre Dame has been a very solid team over the last 5 years.  ND can now get players from allmost anywhere and lets face it, ND is a fat better school (not thank many players think about that anymore).  Im tired of the ACC thinking its still on the top of the basketball world, the are behind the Big East and Big Ten, so they are the third best conf.  Maryland, please get a clue!
