Maine names Walsh men's basketball coach

Orono, ME (SportsNetwork.com) - The University of Maine named Robert G. Walsh its next head men's basketball coach on Wednesday.

The news comes three weeks after the school decided to buy out the contract of Ted Woodward, who guided the team to a subpar 6-23 record this past season.

Walsh had been head coach at Division III Rhode Island College for the past nine years, leading them to a 204-63 record and eight trips to the NCAA Division III Tournament.

"In addition to his head coaching experience, Bob has 11 years of experience as a Division I assistant at Providence College, the University of San Diego and Iona College," Maine athletics director Karlton Creech said. "Coach Walsh is highly respected in the college basketball community and ready for the challenge of leading and rebuilding UMaine's Division I program."

Maine inked Walsh to a four-year deal worth $100,000 the first year and an increase to $120,000 in the fourth.
