Legendary Purdue basketball coach Gene Keady was named a finalist for the 2021 class of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Keady was hired by Purdue in 1980, and was at the helm of the Boilermakers men’s basketball team until 2005, when he retired and turned the role over to Matt Painter. While Keady never made the Final Four or won a national title, he racked up 512 wins to become the winningest coach in Perdue history, and is second only behind rival Indiana coach Bob Knight.

Gene Keady Named Finalist for Basketball Hall of Fame

Lloyd Eugene Keady was just named a finalist for the 2021 class of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. We of course know him better as Gene Keady. The legend. The namesake of Keady Court. The gruff man who roamed the sideline for 25 years as the Boilermakers’ head man. What an honor it would be.
