Notre Dame Preparatory High School (NDP) has hired Brad Quinet as head coach of the school's Saints boys’ basketball program. 

Quinet has coached basketball for more than 25 years, most recently the AAU U17 Arizona Select team, and he is now the Under Armor National Team coach. He established a history of developing premier basketball programs that are recognized for their competitive success. Six of his select players from the 2023-34 season are signed to play at Division I schools next year.

Quinet stepped up to coach the Saints summer basketball program and is fresh off a successful weekend at the Section 7 Tournament, where the Saints advanced to the semifinals of the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) Amazon Bracket.

“I’m very happy to be hired at Notre Dame Prep and to work with this group of kids and see what we can do,” he says.

“Brad fully understands and supports the mission and values of NDP,” says NDP Athletic Director Mike Mahon. “By employing our core values of Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility into his basketball teachings, he prepares student-athletes to be good men. His guidance creates and fosters an environment that promotes the vision of all stakeholders involved in the program.”

Bringing a “Team First” mentality to the Saints, Quinet is already making plans to hire his assistant coaches, and ensuring that every level of NDP basketball is top-notch and works together. His plan is to emphasize teamwork and tough defense.

“If we can be the most defensive team on the court and share the basketball, we will be successful wherever we go,” Quinet says.

In addition to teaching basketball skills and teamwork, the new coach says he will make prayer a priority before and after all games and practices.

“Faith is a huge part of the players’ success as human beings and it’s important to know that we are doing this for more than just ourselves,” he says.

Notre Dame Prep is a Catholic diocesan college preparatory high school with a co-ed enrollment of 1,010 students.

Quinet lives in Scottsdale with his wife and their two sons, one of whom will be a senior on the NDP basketball team this coming season.
