Matt Brady (born October 1, 1965) is an American college basketball coach and the former men's basketball coach at James Madison University.[1] He was introduced at a press conference on March 26, 2008. Brady was formerly the head coach at Marist College, departing with a 73–50 record in four years.[2] He took the Red Foxes to a MAAC regular-season championship in 2007. Marist then advanced to the NIT, where it defeated Oklahoma State in the first round. The NIT victory was the first ever postseason victory for Marist. At Madison, Brady took over a program that hadn't had a winning record since going 20–9 in the 1999–2000 season under Sherman Dillard. However, Dillard had little success in ensuing seasons and, like his successor, Dean Keener, resigned under pressure. Brady inherited an experienced core of upperclassmen from Keener and, with a skilled group of freshmen, engineered a respectable inaugural campaign, leading the Dukes to an 18–13 regular season record. Thanks to the addition of a new postseason invitational—the Tournament—Madison achieved its first 20-win season since 1994, when Hall of Fame coach Lefty Driesell led the program to the NCAA Tournament. The record dipped significantly in 2009–10, in part because of the loss of two key players to injuries: point guard Devon Moore, an all-rookie pick in the CAA in 2009, and forward Andrey Semenov. Brady was released on March 14, 2016 by James Madison.[3]
