The Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball Staff represents the University of Maryland at National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Contest.
Maryland, a founding member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), abandoned the ACC from 2014 to combine the Big Ten Conference.
Gary Williams, who coached the Terrapins from 1989 to 2011, directed the program to its greatest success, including two consecutive Final Fours, which culminated in the 2002 NCAA National Championship. Under Williams, Maryland appeared in eleven straight NCAA Tournaments from 1994 to 2004. He retired in May 2011 and has been replaced by former Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon.
The Terrapins played in what many consider to be the greatest Atlantic Coast Conference game in history — and one of the greatest college basketball games ever — the championship of the 1974 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament, in which they dropped 103–100 in overtime to eventual national champion North Carolina State. The game was instrumental in forcing the growth of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship, hence enabling for at-large bids and the inclusion of more than 1 team per conference. This Maryland team, with six prospective NBA draft picks, is regarded by many to be the best team not to have participated in the NCAA tournament.
