Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 326 Division I teams.


Randy Monroe waited almost 20 years to become the head coach of a college basketball team, and his first opportunity will come at the same place where he has spent half of his career as an assistant.

Monroe was promoted to head coach at UMBC on March 23, less than two weeks after the university accepted the resignation of former head coach Tom Sullivan.
