American hires Mike Brennan
WASHINGTON -- American University hired former Georgetown assistant Mike Brennan as its men's basketball coach on Tuesday.
The 17th coach in the program's history, Brennan replaced Jeff Jones, who left for the same position at Old Dominion earlier this month after 13 seasons with the Eagles.
A four-year starter at Princeton under Pete Carril, Brennan spent 13 years as an assistant, including two at American from 2007-2009. In both seasons, the Eagles won the Patriot League Championship and reached the NCAA tournament.
The past four seasons Brennan served cross-town on the coaching staff of John Thompson III. The Hoyas coach was in attendance for Brennan's introduction on the American University campus.
The Eagles finished 10-20 last season.
