Muffet McGraw in Ring of Honor
One of the greatest coaches to ever be a part of Notre Dame athletics now has her name hanging from the rafters, as Muffet McGraw is now a member of the Notre Dame basketball Ring of Honor.
“I think my favorite moments are after the national championships when we came back to Notre Dame and in the quad where we were met by the fans, family and students came out to support us,” McGraw said. “Those types of moments are just so cherished.”
McGraw coached for the Fighting Irish for 32 seasons, won 905 games, and won two national championships in 2001 and 2018 while finishing with a 77% career winning percentage. McGraw says she’s honored to now be in the Ring of Honor alongside so many players she coached during her tenure with Notre Dame.
“It’s such an elite group and to be part of it and know that I was maybe able to impact their lives a little bit while they were here,” McGraw said. “They’ve gone on to do such great things. I’m so proud of all of them.”
Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick said there will be a statue of Muffet placed outside Purcell Pavilion to honor her and everything she has accomplished at Notre Dame.
