Maryland Announces New Assistant Coach, Juan Dixon Also To Join Staff
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ/UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND) — The Maryland men’s basketball team is making personnel moves.
Head Coach Mark Turgeon announced the resignation Wednesday of assistant coach Dalonte Hill, who spent two full seasons with the team. Dustin Clark will now take his place.
“Dustin is very deserving of this promotion,” Turgeon said in a news release. “He has been an integral member of my staff at both Maryland and Texas A&M. Dustin is a tireless worker and talented coach who will thrive in his new role and help our program continue its ascension to the next level.”
Clark joined the Maryland coaching staff in 2011, serving as the program’s director of basketball operations. He also spent five seasons at Texas A&M — four with Turgeon.
Juan Dixon will also be added as special assistant to the head coach.
One of the most decorated players in Maryland history, Dixon led the Terps to the national title in 2002. He also spent seven seasons in the NBA.
“We’re excited to welcome Juan back to College Park,” Turgeon said. “He is one of the most decorated and celebrated players in Terrapin history. Juan’s diverse experience playing professionally in the NBA, combined with his passion for Maryland basketball, makes him a very strong addition to our program.”
Dixon’s responsibilities will include scouting and film breakdown.
