Mike Brey is going out (at least with Notre Dame) like an absolute legend.

Before Notre Dame‘s Thursday home game against Pittsburgh — the last on the Fighting Irish’s schedule — head coach Mike Brey spoke to reporters Tuesday. He told them he planned on going to the Linebacker Lounge in South Bend for the first time before he leaves the community, and was going to do this win or lose after the Pitt game.

Brey previously announced that the 2022-23 season would be his last at Notre Dame. However, he didn’t rule out the possibility of coaching again one day.

Fast forward to Thursday, going up against the team that’s ranked 25th in the nation and first place in the ACC, most were expecting Brey to head out of South Bend with a loss. But nope, the Irish had different plans, pulling a massive 88-81 upset.

Following the victory, Brey obviously meant what he said, putting down shots of Jameson Irish Whiskey (because of course) with a beer in his right hand surrounded by the Notre Dame faithful in a truly epic scene.

So cool, man. (RELATED: Louisville Cardinals Men’s Basketball Is So Sh*t That Their Halftime Show Dog Took One On The Court)

Congratulations on one hell of a career with Notre Dame, Mike. I hope to see you back coaching soon.
