Report | Notre Dame Finalizing 7-Year Deal with Micah Shrewsberry

March 22, 2023

Per a report from Pete Thamel, Notre Dame is finalizing a deal with Micah Shrewsberry to become its next basketball coach. 

The deal is expected to be seven years, according to sources and first reported by Pat Forde. 

Shrewsberry has been a long-time assistant coach at the college and NBA levels, but took over as the head man at Penn State in 2021. The Nittany Lions went 37-31 over the last two seasons under Shrewsberry’s guidance and that included a 23-14 record in 2022-23 and upsetting No. 7 seed Texas A&M (76-59) before losing to No. 2 seed Texas (71-66) in the Round of 32 last weekend. 

Indiana won’t be new to Shrewsberry as he grew up in Indianapolis and went to college at Hanover College. In addition to growing up in the Hoosier State, Shrewsberry also had coaching stops at Wabash, DePauw, IU South Bend, Butler and Purdue. 

Shrewsberry is the long-time right-hand man to Brad Stevens as the two worked together at Butler and then reunited with the Boston Celtics from 2013-19. And yes, Shrewsberry was part of the Butler teams that made back-to-back National Title game appearances in 2010 and 2011.

The Indiana native will be taking over for Mike Brey, who leaves the Notre Dame program as the all-time leader in wins at 483-280.
