Dave Dickerson has often looked for stability in his college coaching career, in part because his own playing career at Marylandwas marked by instability - and tragedy. Recruited to play for Lefty Driesell, Dickerson had finished his freshman year in College Park when the team's star, Len Bias, died from a cocaine overdose in June of 1986. That fall, Driesell was fired. Dickerson's career at Maryland - the last three spent during Bob Wade's tumultuous stint - left such a sour taste that Dickerson didn't wear his school ring for nearly a decade.

Dave Dickerson hasn't checked the resumes and accomplishments of all the college basketball coaches in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, yet the former Maryland assistant coach and player knows something about one who is on the brink of induction. Gary Williams, 69, is expected to be announced Monday as a member of the 2014 class, and he will be inducted in August. Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that Williams, who has declined comment, had become a first-ballot selection.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt thinks the winner of this weekend's Atlantic Coast Conference men's tournament will be more of a survivor. Maryland coach Gary Williams thinks this weekend will be a fan's dream. On paper, the ACC's featured gathering at Greensboro Coliseum looks like a special event in this, the league's last nine-team party. Each of the league's top five seeds is a Top 20 team. Just below them is sixth-seeded Maryland, which has beaten two of them and been involved in countless other close ACC contests.

Within months after leaving Maryland as a junior in the spring of 2005, John Gilchrist realized he had made a mistake. Sitting in his apartment in Rishon LeZion, a coastal town in Israel where he had begun what would become a nomadic professional basketball career, Gilchrist wrote an email apologizing to his former coach, Gary Williams, and to former Terps assistant Dave Dickerson, by then the head coach at Tulane. "I just basically poured my guts out to them," Gilchrist recalled on a trip back to College Park last month.

Maryland assistant basketball coach Chuck Driesell, son of the legendary Terps coach, will be named head coach at The Citadel, according to three sources with knowledge of his plans. An announcement is likely in the next few days. Driesell will succeed Ed Conroy, who was named head coach at Tulane earlier this month. The Citadel, which has nine rising seniors, was 16-16 (9-9 Southern Conference) last season. Driesell arrived at Maryland in 2006, spending four years on Gary Williams' staff at the school where Driesell's father, Charles "Lefty" Driesell, won 348 games while coaching from 1969 to 1986.

By early next week, University of Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dave Dickerson should find out if he is going home again. Dickerson, a native of Olar, S.C., and a former Maryland player who has coached under Gary Williams for the past six seasons, is hoping to land his first head coaching job, at the College of Charleston. John Kresse recently retired after 23 seasons at the Southern Conference school. "It's a great job, and it would be enticing to go back to South Carolina," said Dickerson, who interviewed earlier this week and was expected to talk more with Charleston officials yesterday.

Dave Dickerson has a dilemma this week going into Friday's opening-round NCAA tournament game between Maryland and Houston in Spokane, Wash. Will he root for the school where he played four years, earned his degree and won a national championship as an assistant coach? Or will the fourth-year Tulane coach pull for a fellow member of Conference USA? Don't ask. "It's going to be an interesting matchup for me. I'm right in the middle of this thing," said Dickerson, who played at Maryland for Lefty Driesell and Bob Wade from 1985 through 1989.

Dave Dickerson has a quandary this week going into Friday's opening-round NCAA tournament game between Maryland and Houston in Spokane, Wash. Will he root for the school where he played four years, earned his degree and won a national championship as an assistant coach?

I'm right in the middle of this thing," said Dickerson, who played at Maryland for Lefty Driesell and Bob Wade from 1985 through 1989.

Dave Dickerson's ties to Maryland's men's basketball program go back to playing in College Park for Lefty Driesell and Bob Wade from 1985 through 1989, and coaching there under Gary Williams from 1996 through 2005. Maryland is where Dickerson met his wife, Laurette, and where their only child, Dave III, was born. But Dickerson, now in his fourth season as the associate head coach at Ohio State, won't have many emotional ties to the Terps when they play the No. 5 Buckeyes in Columbus on Wednesday night as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

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.
