Brady has coached the Poughkeepsie, N.Y., school for the past four seasons and lead Marist to an 18-14 record this season. The Red Foxes won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular-season title and a school-record 25 games last season, including an NIT victory over Oklahoma State.

Brady replaces Dean Keener resigned February 22 after going 31-85 in his four seasons at James Madison of the Colonial Athletic Association. The Dukes went 13-17 this season.
