Karen 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.
