About

Please join the Wakefield School community for a meet and greet, photo ops, reception and conversations with Wakefield's own Coach Harrington with guests such as basketball great, Rhodes Scholar, and U.S. Congressman, Tom McMillen. Proceeds benefit the Wakefield Athletic Program.

Joe Harrington has spent decades developing young basketball talent around the nation and has brought his expertise to Wakefield School where he is coaching our varsity boys’ team. A Wakefield parent of Ava ’19, Joe has declared his determination to raise interest in and funds for Wakefield School’s athletic programs.

For those who are not aware of Coach Harrington’s many achievements, he was a star player for the Maryland Terrapins in the sixties. He drew the attention of the Boston Celtics however he chose to stay in Maryland and begin his career as a coach. There he worked with such luminaries of the game as Coach Lefty Driesell during one of the most successful decades in Terp’s history, mentoring many All-Americans including Tom McMillen who was, at the time, UM’s first and only Rhodes Scholar. From Maryland, he went on to highly successful stints as ahead coach at George Mason, Long Beach State, and the University of Colorado as well as two years with the Toronto Raptors.

His record of team successes and mentoring stars of the game is extraordinary and we are honored to have him and his daughter in our Wakefield community. In his second year, Joe has been instrumental in developing and launching the 1st Annual Wakefield Athletic Weekend.
