Join DePaul Athletics in Helping to Provide BIG EAST Women's Tournament Memories

Help provide buses for local students and youth groups to the BIG EAST Tournament

Dave Corzine shifted into an administrative role at DePaul in the summer of 2009 and began leading the athletics department in its community relations efforts while also serving as the lead game administrator for DePaul's Olympic sports. He is currently the lead game administrator for men's and women's basketball.

The former DePaul basketball standout played for legendary coach Ray Meyer from 1974-78 and is the only player in school history with over 1,000 career rebounds. During his four seasons in Lincoln Park, the Blue Demons compiled a 77-34 record with a visit to the regional finals in the 1978 NCAA Tournament.

A 13-year NBA veteran, Corzine was named DePaul's Director of Men's Basketball Operations on Sept. 29, 2008 after six seasons as the color analyst for DePaul radio broadcasts on WSCR (The Score-670 AM).

"I am thrilled to be back at DePaul," Corzine said about his return. "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."

The Blue Demon center 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 NCAA regional finals.

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.


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. The 6-foot, 11-inch center often set screens for teammate Michael Jordan while also consistently burying a mid-range jumper.

He finished his career with the Orlando Magic and the Seattle SuperSonics. Corzine averaged nearly nine points and six rebounds per game in his NBA career.


A native of northwest suburban Arlington Heights, Corzine is the all-time leading scorer in boys basketball at Hersey High School.
