Stanford associate head coach Dick Davey has announced his plans to retire following the season. Highly-regarded as a true teacher of the game and a well-respected veteran of West Coast basketball, Davey has served four seasons as the Cardinal’s associate head coach while working primarily with the team’s post players. No stranger to the Bay Area hoops scene, Davey previously spent 30 years working with the men’s basketball program at Santa Clara and served as the Broncos’ head coach for 15 seasons. A four-time WCC Coach of the Year, Davey finished his illustrious career with a 251-190 overall record. He directed the Broncos to three NCAA Tournament appearances, three WCC regular season championships, a WCC Tournament title in 1993 and four 20-win seasons. Under his watch, Santa Clara boasted 23 All-WCC selections and four WCC Player of the Year honorees (Sean Denison, Marlon Garnett and Steve Nash twice). Davey’s 251 career victories rank second in the school record books behind coaching legend Carroll Williams.
