The 25 year old had guided the club to its first ever national cup title and its best ever finish in the Irish men’s Super League
In a stunning development in Irish basketball, Charlie Crowley, the 25 year old wunderkind, has opted to step down as head coach of University of Galway Maree.
Crowley guided the men’s team to its first ever men’s national cup semi final in 2022 before leading the side to its first ever national cup title in January of this year. This was followed by topping the Southern Conference in the Super League, the best record outright record in the league, and reaching the Irish Super League championship game this spring, all firsts for the Co. Galway club.
Crowley, whose team wore the motto ‘doubters to believers’ on their warm-up tops said the following to the club:
“After 3 years as the Head Coach of the Superleague team I’ve decided to take a step done from the role. Throughout my time as the coach I’ve met some of the best people I’ll ever meet, from all different corners of the world. When I grew up with the Eoin’s and Steve’s going from game to game week to week, it was our dream for our team to be finally taken seriously,”
“In the last 3 years the amount of work that we’ve put in to make that happen has been incredible and, for the most part, I’ve loved every second of it. In year 1 we got ourselves to believe we could do it. In year 2 we got most of our fans to believe we could do it. And in year 3 we did it,”

“I’m a very proud Maree man and will be that for the rest of my life. I acknowledge this past year as one of my greatest achievements both professionally and personally. I take great pride in stepping away from this position knowing I gave everything to it, and in return the people involved gave everything they could to this team,”
“To everyone that has changed from Doubter to Believer, thank you for the many memorable nights we had in the Kingfisher. This team are hungry and I have no doubt will continue to bring tremendous pride to our parish and the extended Galway basketball community. I look forward to being there front row, every chance I can get. “
