Gary Williams

Gary Williams was the coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Maryland from 1989 to 2011. He returned to coach his alma mater after successful head coaching tenures at American University, Boston College and Ohio State. Williams guided the Terps to a 10-win improvement in his first season in 1989, the largest in school history. The former Maryland guard -- he played under coach Bud Millikan 1965-1967 -- led the Terps through an NCAA probationary period he inherited and went on to make the NCAA tournament in 1994, his fifth season at Maryland. What followed was a run of success rivaled only by a select few college coaches and programs. The Terps made the NCAA tournament each y... Show more »
Gary Williams was the coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Maryland from 1989 to 2011. He returned to coach his alma mater after successful head coaching tenures at American University, Boston College and Ohio State. Williams guided the Terps to a 10-win improvement in his first season in 1989, the largest in school history. The former Maryland guard -- he played under coach Bud Millikan 1965-1967 -- led the Terps through an NCAA probationary period he inherited and went on to make the NCAA tournament in 1994, his fifth season at Maryland. What followed was a run of success rivaled only by a select few college coaches and programs. The Terps made the NCAA tournament each year from 1994-2004, a streak matched by only five other coaches. Returning Maryland to prominence, Williams and the Terps made Cole Field House and Comcast Center -- their current arena -- among the toughest opposing venues in college basketball during that time. Williams' crowning achievement was the 2002 season that saw Maryland win a school-record 32 games and the Atlantic Coast Conference title during the regular season. One year after losing in a national semifinal game, Williams led the Terps back to the Final Four and ultimately defeated Indiana in the title game to claim the national championship. In doing so, he joined a select group of coaches who have guided their alma maters to a national title. Entering the 2007-08 season, Williams, the Terps' all-time winningest head coach, had compiled a 378-200 record in 18 seasons at Maryland. Entering '07-'08, he had a 585-328 overall record in 29 seasons as a Division I collegiate head coach. Williams was born on March 4, 1945, in Collingswood, N.J. « Show less
