Large Irish Presence at Heisman Gala

No football program produced more star power in the ballroom than the University of Notre Dame

Brant Ust, a baseball Monogram winner and 2001 graduate of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, was named executive director of the Notre Dame Monogram Club on March 17, 2014.

In addition to managing the Monogram Club's staff, activities and membership outreach, Ust collaborates closely with the Board of Directors to establish the Club's priorities and goals. Additionally, he oversees special events and reunions involving former student-athletes throughout the year, as well as serving as the Sport Administrator for the men's golf team.

Prior to his current role at his alma mater, Ust worked with USA Baseball from 2010-14, where he served as Director of the 18U National Team Program & Alumni Relations. Under his leadership, the 18U National Team won gold medals at the 2011 COPABE 18U Pan American Championships in Cartagena, Colombia, the 2012 IBAF 18U World Championships in Seoul, South Korea and the 2013 IBAF 18U World Cup in Taichung, Taiwan.

Ust also helped to reconnect USA Baseball with its former players and coaches, while building awareness for the organization's brand and future endeavors.

What's more, Ust was integrally involved with organizing the USA Baseball-Irish Classic, which Notre Dame has hosted at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in 2013 and 2014.

Selected by the Detroit Tigers in the sixth round of the 1999 draft, Ust enjoyed a nine-year professional baseball career with the Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners organizations. He was a member of USA Baseball's 1998 Collegiate National Team and 2005 World Cup Team.

Before joining the USA Baseball staff, Ust served as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan.

As an infielder at Notre Dame, Ust became one of the most decorated players in program history, earning BIG EAST Rookie of the Year honors in 1997, while taking home the conference's Player of the Year award in 1998. He also earned third-team All-America recognition from the ABCA, Baseball America and NCBWA. In 1999, he was named the team's Monogram Club MVP.

A three-time BIG EAST first-team selection, Ust started 179 consecutive games, and finished his Irish career with a .368 batting average, 51 doubles, 46 home runs and 170 RBI.

A native of Redmond, Wash., Ust resides in Granger with his wife, Jessica, and three children, Gavin, Sullivan and Kellen.
