The Coach

Brian Wardle is the Men's Basketball Coach at Bradley University. Having reestablished Bradley men’s basketball as a championship-level program, Brian Wardle is in his seventh year as head coach of the Braves. In his first six seasons on the BU sideline, Wardle has built Bradley into a perennial Missouri Valley Conference contender, capped by winning back-to-back championships in 2019 and 2020. Bradley opened the 2018-19 season by defeating Penn State in the Cancun Challenge Championship as the Braves claimed their first regular-season tournament trophy since 1983. The early-season crown wouldn’t be the last trophy the Braves lifted that campaign as Wardle helped BU win its first Missouri Valley Conference Tournament title in 31 years. Not content with a one-year run, Wardle and the Braves repeated as Missouri Valley Conference Champions in 2020. Bradley won back-to-back conference titles for the first time in school history, while becoming the ninth team in conference history to accomplish the feat. It also marked the first time since 1954 and 1955 that the Braves qualified for the NCAA Tournament in consecutive campaigns.
