Coach Williams (1989-90 to 2010-11)

Help Save Coach Williams Era History Today!

Gary Williams, a former Terrapin point guard from 1964-1967 for Coach Millikan, returned to lead his alma mater in June 1989. Between 1989 and 2011, Coach Williams won 442 out of 680 games at Maryland, with 14 NCAA Tournament berths, seven Sweet 16 appearances and two Final Four appearances, leading the Terps to the national championship in 2002 and the ACC championship in 2004.

Williams is Maryland’s all-time winningest coach and third all-time in the ACC. He has been honored with induction into the University of Maryland Athletics Hall of Fame (1999) and Alumni Hall of Fame (2005), as well as the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame (2014) and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (2014). He became the mentor for UMD basketball stars such as Walt Williams, Steve Blake, Lonny Baxter, Joe Smith, Steve Francis, Juan Dixon, Keith Booth, and Chris Wilcox.
