Brady Sallee is an American college basketball coach and the current head women's coach at Ball State University.[1] He previously held the same position at Eastern Illinois University (EIU) in Charleston, Illinois.


A native of Lexington, Kentucky, Sallee played collegiate baseball and served as a student assistant with the women's basketball team at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky from 1990 to '93, earning his bachelor's degree in business administration in 1993. Sallee and his wife Mandy have three children; Avery, Taryn and Drew.

Coaching career[edit]

After graduating from Thomas More, Sallee spent two years as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Idaho State University. He was then in the same jobs for seven years with the Kent State Golden Flashes, where his recruiting was credited with being largely responsible for the program's success during his time there. Next came two seasons performing the same jobs at East Carolina, where the athletic director called him, " excellent recruiter..." when announcing his appointment as coach at Eastern Illinois on April 26, 2004.[2] When he took over the EIU program, Sallee first built a solid foundation and then lead the Panthers to the school's most successful string of seasons in Division I.[3] On May 11, 2012, Sallee was named the eleventh head women's basketball coach at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.[1]
