Former Maryland coach Gary Williams, who won 461 games in College Park and a national championship in 2002, has been named a finalist for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

David Aldridge of TNT reported the news on Friday afternoon, with Williams joining a handful of other former players and coaches. The news was confirmed in a press release by the Hall of Fame.

Before coming to Maryland and successfully rebuilding a program that was in near-shambles when he arrived, Williams coached at Ohio State, Boston College, and American University.

Williams played his college basketball with the Terrapins from 1964-67 and was named a team captain during his senior season. 

Since retiring from coaching, Williams has done work in the media including television appearances with Comcast SportsNet.
