Since returning to the College Park campus in 1989, Gary Williams (Maryland '68) has led his alma mater's basketball program from a period of troubled times to an era of national prominence.
With 14 NCAA Tournament berths in the last 17 seasons, seven Sweet Sixteen appearances, a pair of consecutive Final Four showings, and the 2002 National Championship - the first of its kind in Maryland basketball history - Williams and his staff have literally forged what is now more than a decade of dominance in college basketball's most storied and competitive conference.
After leading the Terrapins to the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title in 2010, Williams was voted the league's Coach of the Year by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. It was his second such award, as he was also honored in 2002.
Now with 442 victories as Maryland's head coach, Williams stands as the Terrapins all-time winningest head basketball coach. He passed Charles "Lefty" Driesell, who amassed 348 victories in 18 seasons from 1969 to 1986. The Terrapins have averaged 22.6 wins per year since the 1994-95 season.
