The Ivey era continued on Wednesday as Karen and Kevin Keyes Family Head Coach Niele Ivey announced her coaching staff. Associate Head Coach Carol Owens and Assistant Coach Michaela Mabrey will be joined on the Irish sidelines by 1993 Notre Dame alumnae Coquese Washington.
Washington donned the Irish uniform from 1989-93 and helped the program reach its first NCAA Tournament in 1992. Washington was later an assistant coach under Muffet McGraw from 1999-07 and tutored Ivey on the way to the program’s first national title in 2001.
