Coach | Valparaiso, IU-South Bend, Bethel
Homer Drew was a winner at every stop of his career, holding head coaching positions at Bethel (Ind.), IU-South Bend and Valparaiso. After tallying a combined 269 victories over 12 seasons at Bethel and South Bend, Drew took the reins at Valparaiso in 1988, ultimately spending 22 years with the Crusaders. Drew’s Valpo teams reached seven NCAA Tournaments, including five-straight appearances from 1995-99. His 1998 squad reached the Sweet 16, thanks in large part to one of the most iconic moments in college basketball history when his son Bryce hit a buzzer-beater to upset Ole Miss in the first round. Drew finished with 371 wins at Valparaiso, earned four conference Coach of the Year accolades and captured a total of 16 conference regular-season and tournament championships.
