Carroll has hired former Georgetown University standout Reggie Williams as its new boys' basketball coach. Williams replaces Michael Adams, who left Carroll after one season to become an assistant coach at St. Bonaventure.

"I personally think we got the best person, the best candidate," Carroll Athletic Director George Leftwich said, having brought aboard one former NBA guard to replace another.

Williams, who spent 10 seasons in the NBA, had a tough basketball season this past year. He previously had been the coach at Jericho Christian, which closed before last school year. Williams then was hired to coach at Towson Catholic, which also subsequently closed before the school year.

Finally, Williams was hired just before the season to be the coach at Chesapeake College, a junior college on the Eastern Shore. The Skipjacks finished the season 6-16.

"It was rough," Williams said. "After December, I had four players. I ended up asking two baseball players to help us finish the season."
