Richard “ Doc” Costello

“Doc” Costello was the living embodiment of the University of Southern Maine. He coached both men’s and women’s basketball, winning over 200 games with each gender; the only coach in NCAA history to do so. He was named Athletic Director of USM in 1955 and dedicated himself to his beloved university the rest of his life. The University named its sports complex after him; it is known as the “ Costello Sports Complex.”
