Ocean City, MD – (March 15, 2018): Ocean City Recreation and Parks is excited to announce Salisbury University’s Men’s Basketball Coach Andrew Sachs as this summer’s Co-Rec Basketball Camp director.
“I am very excited to be directing the Ocean City Rec Basketball Camp. This camp was started when I was an assistant with Coach Ward Lambert, so to be back directing the camp is an honor and privilege,” Coach Sachs said.
According to Coach Sachs, he has worked over 130 weeks of basketball camp over his coaching career, moving upward to directing camps for over a decade.
“My staff and players will bring our championship winning drills to the camp and create an atmosphere that will make it fun and memorable for all of our campers and give them the drills that will help make them better basketball players,” he said.
Coach Sachs has led the Sea Gulls to two NCAA tournaments, the only coach in program history to do so in his first two years on the bench, and one of just two head coaches in SU history to lead the program to the big dance in two seasons during their tenure.
A Salisbury alumnus, Coach Sachs spent the previous six seasons prior to coming back to Salisbury as the head men’s basketball coach and head men’s tennis coach at Bethany (W.V.) College. At Bethany, Sachs led the Bison to a 117-49 overall record and the team qualified for the postseason every year, including consecutive Presidents’ Athletic Conference tournament championships and NCAA tournament appearances in 2011 and 2012.
Prior to Bethany, Sachs spent five seasons at The College of The Holy Cross as the top assistant for Ralph Willard. At Holy Cross, Sachs helped instrument a 12-win turnaround in his first year. The Crusaders finished that season with 25 wins, including a 16-game winning streak — the second longest winning streak in program history.
Overall, in his 27 years of coaching at the college level, Sachs has coached 46 all-league players, 12 of whom were the conference Player of the Year, 11 All-Americans, and 12 players who have continued their careers professionally overseas.
