Notre Dame announces new men’s basketball assistant coach

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – The Notre Dame Men’s Basketball team has found a new assistant coach in former Irish team captain, Antoni Wyche.

Wyche joins the staff for the 2021-22 season after working as an assistant coach at Siena, where he served as the recruiting and defensive coordinator for the Saints and helped guide the team to the 2020 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title in 2019-20.

Men’s basketball staff are looking forward to welcoming Wyche back to his old stomping grounds.

“Antoni is part of the Notre Dame family and I am excited to be able to bring him back to campus,” head coach Mike Brey said. “He has a proven track record of identifying and developing talent. There’s a toughness about him, a grinding work ethic and pride to be back working at his alma mater.”

“I am extremely excited and grateful for this opportunity to return home and can't wait to join the staff and team on campus,” Wyche said. “Notre Dame is a special place as I was fortunate enough to have met my wife here and I genuinely feel my experiences both on and off the court really helped mold the player and coach I became after graduation. The opportunity to work with this staff and team as we build back to the goal of postseason success is something I take with pride and look forward to attacking daily.”

Wyche was a four-year letterwinner for Irish head coach John MacLeod from 1995—99.

Wyche played around the world professionally before becoming as assistant coach at Lehigh University in 2009.

He will officially join the Irish for practice on July 6.
