PHILADELPHIA - After spending five seasons with Steve Donahue at Boston College, Brad Fadem has made the move to Philadelphia and joins Coach Donahue’s University of Pennsylvania men’s basketball staff as the program’s director of operations.
The move represents a return home for Fadem, who grew up in nearby Devon, Pa.
“I am excited to be able to reunite with Brad and bring him back to his hometown,” said Donahue. “Brad did great work for me when I was at Boston College, and I know he will be a great asset to our program. He is a guy who hits the ground running in everything he does, and he will quickly become a valuable member of the Penn Basketball family.”
Overall, Fadem spent six seasons with the BC men’s basketball program, four as an undergraduate manager and two as a graduate manager. As an undergrad, he traveled with the Eagles to Spain in August 2012. As a manager, Fadem assisted with the team's video and film, off-season workouts, and recruiting-related tasks, while also organizing the managers' work schedules.
Fadem graduated from BC’s Carroll School of Management in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in finance and management & leadership while minoring in film studies. He also holds a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Boston College.
