Position: Men's Basketball Analyst
Experience: 13 Years
Chris Knoche, a former player and head coach at American University who has worked in radio and television for the past seven years, is in his 13th season as the color analyst for the Maryland men's basketball radio broadcasts.

Knoche spent 17 seasons at American, playing the 1979-80 and 80-81 seasons under Maryland's legendary head coach Gary Williams before moving into an assistant coaching position and later serving seven seasons (1991-97) as the Eagles' head coach.

Prior to joining Maryland's broadcast crew, he worked 40-50 games each of the previous two season as a color commentator, including stints on the Ivy League Game of the Week on Westwood One/CBS Radio and Ivy League Game of the Week for DirecTV and for HDTV. He has also worked telecasts for ESPN and CSN, in addition to doing radio and television analysis for George Mason University games. Currently he makes regular guest appearances on the highly rated "The Sports Reporters" on Sportstalk 980 in Washington, D.C.

"Chris Knoche brings an outstanding background as a player, coach and fan to our basketball broadcasts," said Williams, Maryland's head coach from 1989 - 2011.

"Being able to work with Johnny Holliday, Chris provides the opportunity for Maryland fans to listen to someone who has very good experience as a color commentator. More important, he is someone who has a great feel for the game of basketball. I have known Chris as a player and a coach for more than 20 years. He has been an exciting addition to our basketball program."
