First Coaching Endowment Gift in Notre Dame’s History….And It Goes To…..Women’s Basketball!

NDKaren and Kevin Keyes, both former athletes at the University of Notre Dame have become the first ever donors in Notre Dame’s history to endow a coaching position – and they have done this for Women’s Basketball. Karen was a player for current coach and hall of famer, Muffet McGraw (pictured left) in the 90s.

The Notre Dame press release suggests this may be the largest endowment of its kind in NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball history.

 

Thank you to Kevin and Karen Keyes for your support of women’s athletics and the coaches who make it happen!
