Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Howard Burton Shipley (January 17, 1890 - February 22, 1976) was a multi-sport athlete and coach for the Maryland Terrapins at the University of Maryland. He is probably most remembered as the first and long-time head coach of the men's basketball team. He also coached the Maryland baseball team. Shipley graduated from the Maryland Agricultural College (now the University of Maryland) in 1914. While there, he played basketball, baseball, and football as a quarterback. In 1923, he became the head coach for the Maryland basketball team, a position in which he would serve until 1947. During his tenure, he compiled a 243-199 record.show more
