Mike Brennan '94 has been named the head men's basketball coach at American University, swelling the ranks of Princeton alumni currently serving as Division I men's basketball head coaches to a national-best seven alongside North Carolina.

Brennan joins, in order of graduation, Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State), Joe Scott '87 (Denver), John Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond), Sydney Johnson '97 (Fairfield) and Mitch Henderson '98 (Princeton) as current Division I men's basketball head coaches.

Brian Earl '99 (Princeton) and Scott Greenman '06 (Georgetown) are assistant coaches in Division I.

While at Princeton, Brennan was a two-year captain in 1992-93 and 1993-94, both years alongside Mooney, and was a second-team All-Ivy League pick in 1994. He began his full-time coaching career under Thompson at Princeton in 2000 and continued at his alma mater under Scott. Following two years as an assistant coach at American from 2007-09, he reunited with Thompson at Georgetown the last four seasons.

After helping Princeton to the NCAA Tournament his first two years in 1991 and 1992, Brennan returned to the NCAAs with Thompson in 2001 and 2004. While at American, Brennan and the staff coached the Eagles to their only two NCAA appearances in 2008 and 2009, and he has helped coach Georgetown in the NCAA in each of the last four seasons.
