When it comes to Big Ten basketball coaches, Purdue's Gene Keady is one of the all-time greats. As a seven-time Big Ten Coach of the Year, Keady's 512 victories is the most in Purdue history, where he managed to lead the Boilers to two Elite Eight appearances and five Sweet Sixteen appearances in the NCAA Tournament before his retirement.
