BALTIMORE (WJZ)– University of Maryland men’s basketball head coach Mark Turgeon  announced Friday that Kevin Broadus has been hired as the assistant coach of the team.

Broadus most recently spent nine years at Georgetown University as an assistant coach. He began his coaching career at Bowie State after he had played there for his final three years of college.

He also coached at the University of the District of Columbia, American University, George Washington University, Binghamton University and at summer camps for the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin to the Maryland Basketball family,” Turgeon said. “Kevin has a strong reputation as a tireless recruiter and is passionate about developing players on and off the court. He has extensive knowledge and experience as a coach and I am confident his ties to this region will be extremely valuable to our program.”

“It is an honor and a privilege to work with Coach Turgeon,” said Broadus, who is a D.C. native who played at Dunbar and Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring. “I have watched him from afar and really admire him. He has been very successful everywhere he has been. I am excited to be a part of this program and continue to build on the success they have had at Maryland. I was born and raised here and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to stay home and coach at such a fantastic University.”

Former assistant coach Cliff Warren has become the director of player development in his fourth season with the team.

“Cliff shared his desire of tending to family matters and this new position will allow him to do so,” Turgeon said. “He has been an outstanding mentor and role model to our team. Cliff will continue to play an integral role in supporting and guiding our student-athletes academically as well as helping them achieve success on and off the court.”
