Georgetown assistant Chuck Driesell said yesterday that he is making a second attempt to become the head basketball coach at Towson University.

"I've been a head coach [Marymount University] for six years, recruited all over the Baltimore area and had one year's experience in the Big East since I last applied for the job," said the son of former Maryland coach Lefty Driesell.

The younger Driesell was a candidate for the Towson coaching position when Mike Jaskulski was hired in 1997.

Driesell submitted his application yesterday. Towson athletic director Wayne Edwards said Driesell's application was "one of 27 to 30 I received."

"I never comment on applicants," Edwards said.

Driesell's status at Georgetown is uncertain after the firing of coach Craig Esherick.

The Towson coaching vacancy developed Wednesday morning when Michael Hunt resigned.
