Mike Brey’s wife Tish Brey was a student at George Washington along with Mike in the early 1980’s. Mike had transferred from some other school and was playing as a fifth-year. He’d just gone to get a sandwich at a local deli and sat in the bleachers to eat it before practice, and he noticed a young, striking volleyball player that he was taken with. That was Tish.
It didn’t take long before the two were dating regularly, and they both graduated in 1982. Mike became a coach at a place called DeMatha for five years, and after that he moved on to become an assistant at Duke for Mike Krzyzewski. GW Magazine recently reported that Mike Brey’s wife Tish Brey celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in DC by attending a play at the Kennedy Center and having dinner downtown. Then Tish and Mike walked around their old GW campus noticing everything that had changed and everything that had stayed the same.
The couple now reside in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It’s a short drive from Washington, and it’s a cool little beach community. Mike Brey’s wife Tish Brey has recently been out in Arizona climbing and hiking mountains with friends. She’s posted some pictures at Cathedral Rock in Sedona, The Grand Canyon, and some other rock called Bell Rock. She’s spent all of February in Sedona, and she gave a brief shout about her husband’s former team Duke, saying “Wow quite a recruiting tool for Duke right before Duke/ND hmm.” My guess is she still follows all the college basketball action, and she is more than well-informed about any team that would potentially be facing her husband’s team. Notre Dame will be playing Wichita St. on March 26, and she seems to be staying away from all the tournament action, favoring a sunny, outdoorsy time in Arizona.
