Everett S. Dean (March 18, 1898 – October 26, 1993) was a college men's basketball and baseball coach.

Biography[edit]

Born in Livonia, Indiana, Dean played basketball for three years at Indiana University, where he was also a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, and was named the 1921 Helms Athletic Foundation All-America team.[1] He began his coaching career at Carleton College.

Dean was the head baseball and basketball coach at his alma mater, Indiana University, from 1924 to 1938. In 1938, Dean was named head basketball coach at Stanford University, where he coached the team to the 1942 NCAA championship.[2] Dean was named baseball coach at Stanford in 1950, and led Stanford's baseball team to the 1953 College World Series.

Dean is the only coach named to both the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and the College Baseball Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 1965. He also has the distinction of being the first basketball All-American from Indiana University.

Dean wrote two books, Indiana Basketball in 1933 and Progressive Basketball in 1942.[3]

His fondness for the local history of his native Washington County, Indiana led him to push for the creation of the John Hay Center of Salem, Indiana.[4]
