The NDP boys' basketball team celebrates the announcement of their new head coach. Brad Quinet accepted the job on Tuesday, June 25.

Notre Dame Preparatory High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Brad Quinet as head coach of the Saints boys’ basketball program. Having coached a few current NDP players, Quinet is familiar with the athletes and the team’s style of play.

Quinet received the news on Tuesday, June 25, from NDP Athletic Director Mike Mahon.

“Brad fully understands and supports the mission and values of NDP,” Mahon said. “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.”

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 2023-24 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,” Quinet said.

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.

He plans to emphasize teamwork and tough defense with the boys, who were excited to hear the news about their new coach. “If we can be the most defensive team on the court and share the basketball, we will be successful wherever we go,” Quinet said.

In addition to teaching basketball skills and teamwork, the new coach vows to 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,” Quinet added.

The new coach lives in Scottsdale with his wife, Raquel, and their two sons, Bryce and Brexton. Bryce will be a senior on the NDP basketball team this coming season.
