Mike Brey wasn’t happy with how his final game at Notre Dame was officiated on Tuesday night.

The Fighting Irish lost a close game to Virginia Tech, which closed out Brey’s 23-year tenure in South Bend. The game was flipped in closing moments as Virginia Tech was awarded 2 technical free throws on a controversial call.

The decision meant possession (and 2 free throws) for the Hokies even after Notre Dame was fouled on the play. Virginia Tech then scored to go up 3 and was able to get a stop on Notre Dame’s final possession.

“I’ll be very honest now that I’m not in the league anymore,” Brey said. “I think that last play, if you have an A officiating crew, and that was not an A crew, you say, basketball play, and we shoot the free throws and we play basketball.

“I think we got a little over analyzation on that part of it. Look, Virginia Tech made plays, but I don’t think that was handled right.”

Brey is not retiring and is expected to pursue other head coaching jobs this offseason.

Notre Dame is also currently in the midst of a national search to find Brey’s replacement. Notre Dame finished this season with a 11-21 record.
