Ex-Pallotti basketball coach Glick moves to Spalding

September 01, 1999|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Mike Glick, who built Pallotti into a boys high school basketball power, is the new head coach at Archbishop Spalding in Severn.

Glick, whose coaching career began at Montgomery Junior College (1988-90) and Columbia Union (1990-93), was 122-59 as Pallotti coach from 1993 to 1999.

His 1997-98 team was nationally ranked for seven consecutive weeks and was 26-8 with four losses to national power DeMatha.

Glick, who will remain director of physical education for a third year at Pallotti, succeeds Tony Martin. Martin led Spalding to a 31-5 record in his third season and was named The Sun's Metro Coach of the Year before taking an assistant coaching position at Towson University in August.

After going 20-9 last season, Glick announced his resignation as Pallotti coach in April. In his six seasons at Pallotti, Glick coached eight Division I players.

Also, every Pallotti graduate during Glick's tenure qualified academically to play in college. But when the school decided to go in another direction athletically, he decided to step down.

"I'm ecstatic to get the job at Spalding and am eagerly anticipating meeting the players," said Glick.

"The Catholic League and level of competition, along with Spalding's commitment to academics and athletics, appealed to me."

Similarities between the 33-year old Glick and the 34-year old Martin impressed Spalding athletic director Lee Dove, who once coached the Cavaliers. Both practice aggressive recruiting and coaching.

Glick "has the same strong work ethic and passion for the game of basketball that Tony has," Dove said.

Spalding finished No. 2 last season.
