Former Maryland star coaching at Wakefield

Former University of Maryland star Joe Harrington, who played briefly in the NBA, has joined the staff of Wakefield School in The Plains as a basketball coach.

Harrington started all four years at Maryland, and the Boston Celtics drafted him in 1967.

After a short stint in the NBA, he served as an assistant coach at U.Md., and then as head coach at Hofstra, George Mason, Long Beach State and the University of Colorado. He also worked as an assistant to legendary Duke basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski for the U.S. National Team at the Goodwill Games in Seattle and the World Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

After his head coaching career, Harrington became an assistant coach for the Toronto Raptors in the NBA, then returned to Maryland as an assistant for former teammate, Gary Williams.

Harrington will run a basketball camp for youngsters July 18-22 at Wakefield.
