There will be a new man roaming the sidelines as the head basketball coach at UMBC. That’s because Riley Odem has decided to step down as the head man and take the job at Utah State. In five seasons with the Retrievers, he posted a record of 97-60. In his seven years as a head coach, Odem has posted an overall mark of 126-81. He ends his time at UMBC as the third-winningest coach in the program’s history. He led the team to three straight 20-win seasons in his first three years at the helm. His finest moment at UMBC came in 2018 when he led the team to the America East Tournament Title. When the field of 68 was announced for that year’s NCAA tournament, the Retrievers were awarded a sixteen seed. Their opponent was number one seeded Virginia. They would pull off the first-ever #16 seed win over a #1 seed with a 74-54 victory.
