The 2008-2009 season will be Erin Brady's fourth on the coaching staff at Loyola College. Since coming to the Charles Street campus, Brady's work with the Greyhounds has helped the team win 52 games, the most in a three-season stretch since 1997-2000.
Brady works primarily with the post players on the court at Loyola. Off the court, Brady coordinates the team's community service efforts and the team's travel.
Brady began her collegiate coaching career at Loyola in 2005 after an outstanding playing career, culminating with the 2003-2004 season at St. Joseph's University. She averaged 10.7 points per game and led the team in assists and steals as a senior co-captain of a team that advanced to the WNIT Elite Eight.
At St. Joe's Brady was a member of the team during the 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 seasons when Loyola Head Coach Joe Logan was a member of the coaching staff. Prior to her time at the Philadelphia school, Brady was a starter on the women's basketball team at American University.
Brady started all but one game at point guard during her two seasons at St. Joe's. She earned All-Atlantic 10 Third Team honors as a senior. The Hawks advanced to the WNIT both years.
In addition to her All-Atlantic 10 Third Team selection in 2003-2004, she was named to the All-Big Five Second Team in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004. She was the Hawks' Most Valuable Player in 2002-2003 and earned several academic honors, as well. Brady was named to the Atlantic 10 Honor Roll from 2001-2004, the Commissioner's Honor Roll and the St. Joe's Athletic Director's Honor Roll.
At American, Brady led the Eagles in scoring (11.7 ppg), assists (3.2 apg) and steals (2.6 spg) during her sophomore season.
Prior to her college career, Brady was a standout high school player at Marian Catholic High School in Tamaqua, Pa. She scored 2,089 points and was a First Team All-Pennsylvania pick and earned All-America Honorable Mention from USA Today.
Following her tenure on the court at St. Joe's, Brady played professional in Ireland with the Bausch and Lomb Wildcats of Waterford. While in Ireland, Brady coached the Mercy High School junior varsity girls' basketball team to an undefeated record and a third place finish in the All-Ireland Tournament.
She also wrote a weekly column for the Lehighton Times-News, a publication in near her hometown of Weatherly, Pa., about her experiences in Ireland. After graduation, she also worked as a trainer at Summit Sports Training Center, performing individual athletic instruction and personal fitness training.
"Having coached Erin, I know what a hard worker and student of the game she is," Logan said. "The same work ethic and determination which makes her successful on the court will make her successful as a coach."
Brady, 26, received her bachelor of arts degree in marketing from St. Joseph's in 2003 and her MBA from St. Joe's in management in 2004. She is currently pursuing her masters in education at Loyola and resides in Baltimore.
