RADIO BROADCASTER & SPORTS COMMENTATOR, WGN-AM IN CHICAGO
After graduating from DePaul in 1971, Joey Meyer started as a Blue Demon recruiter before serving as assistant coach under his father, the iconic Ray Meyer, for 11 seasons. When Coach Ray retired after leading the Blue Demons from 1942 to 1984, “Coach Joey” took over the head coaching position. In total, he led DePaul to seven NCAA Tournament appearances in his first eight seasons. Currently, he provides color commentary on Northwestern's WGN-AM radio broadcasts and is a Midwest regional scout for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Playing for Joey Meyer was a pleasure. Obviously, he was a great coach, his record speaks for itself. But he is an even better human being. He was what most of us on that team needed at that time in our lives.
