The UMaine men’s basketball rebuild is underway

Chris Markwood’s first game as the men’s basketball coach at the University of Maine is six months away, but some of his most important work is already underway.

The hiring of his first assistant coach, former Drexel University chief of staff Kevin O’Driscoll, was announced Tuesday, soon to be followed by a more personal step in his transition.

“It’s been busy but it’s been good,” said Markwood, the 2005 UMaine graduate who was named to lead the men’s basketball program at his alma mater on March 21. “And the great thing is my family and I are moving up there at the end of this week and we’ll be there full time.”
