"I have always respected Dave not only as a player but as a man," Wainwright said. "His role is establishing the DePaul Basketball tradition goes without saying, and I look forward to him making a positive contribution to our program."
"I am thrilled to be back at DePaul," Corzine said. "This is a
tremendous opportunity for me to work with talented people and help give
back to the program that I owe so much to. I am ready to jump in with
both feet and help the program any way I can."
A member of the Blue Demons from 1974-78, Corzine is the only player in
school history to grab over 1,000 rebounds in a career and was an
honorable mention All-American after his senior season in 1977-78 when
he helped the Blue Demons to a 27-3 record and the regional finals of
the NCAA Tournament. The school's all-time leading rebounder with 1,151
boards, he still ranks third in school history for scoring with 1,896
points. During his four seasons in Lincoln Park, Corzine helped DePaul
to a 77-34 record and a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances.
Corzine was the 18th overall pick of the 1978 NBA Draft by the
Washington Bullets and went on to play in the league for 13 seasons.
After two years with the Bullets and two more with the San Antonio Spurs, Corzine returned to his roots of Chicago to play for the Bulls
for seven seasons. He finished his career with the Orlando Magic and the
Seattle SuperSonics. He averaged nearly nine points and six rebounds per
game in his NBA career.
A native of Arlington Heights, Ill. where he graduated from Hersey High
School, Corzine has spent the past six seasons as the color analyst for
DePaul radio broadcasts on WSCR (670 AM) in the Windy City.
