Son of Lefty to Replace Moxley?
Word around town is that Chuck Driesell, son of former Maryland head coach Lefty Driesell, is one of the leading candidates for the assistant coach position recently vacated by Rob Moxley.
In another coaching development, Chuck Driesell, the Bishop Ireton boys' basketball coach and son of former Maryland coach Lefty Driesell, has emerged as a leading candidate to fill Maryland's vacant assistant coaching position, according to high school basketball sources.
"That would be great," Driesell said of joining the staff.
Driesell also was a candidate for a job as a Maryland assistant last year. He would replace Rob Moxley, who became Charlotte's associate head coach. Driesell, who graduated from Maryland in 1985, has been an assistant under Craig Esherick at Georgetown, the head coach at Marymount and an assistant under his father at James Madison.
Although we're not sure about the gaping hole Moxley left in regards to his incredible recruiting prowess, TUL feels that Mr. Driesell would be a nice addition to the coaching staff. He's not only a former Terrapin player himself, but the son of Maryland's first (but of course not last) legendary coaches. Of course, this is merely speculation at this point, but then again, it's also been a really slow day, so if you've read this far, then I've apparently did my job.
