Muffet McGraw inducted into 2017 Hall of Fame class
Observer Sports Staff | Saturday, April 1, 2017
Irish head coach Muffet McGraw added yet another — and perhaps her most impressive — accolade to her coaching resume Saturday, as she was named a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2017 class.
McGraw is the sixth-winningest female coach in women’s basketball history, and her career record of 853-227 ranks her as the 10th winningest coach of all time. Her 765 wins at Notre Dame makes her the winningest single-sport coach in the University’s history.
Although she is Notre Dame’s seventh inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, she is the first from the women’s program. She was a 2011 inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, having amassed seven Final Four appearances in her 24 NCAA tournament appearances, which includes her current run of 22 straight appearances.
