Williams adds Kovarik to Terps' staff


Former Maryland basketball player Matt Kovarik has been hired as an assistant by Terps coach Gary Williams.

Kovarik, a guard for the Terps from 1994 to 1998, will be a non-recruiting assistant responsible for managing day-to-day player schedules and details surrounding Williams' summer basketball camps.

Kovarik worked for Xerox in New York for two years and recently completed his first year of law school.

Kovarik joins Dave Dickerson and Jimmy Patsos, who were promoted after former senior assistant Billy Hahn took the head coaching job at La Salle last month. Dickerson is entering his sixth season under Williams. Patsos just completed his 10th season in College Park.

Kovarik's best year was his senior season, when he averaged 2.4 points, 2.0 assists and 1.7 rebounds while playing 15 minutes a game. The Terps went to the Sweet 16 and finished with a 21-11 record in 1998.
