COLLEGE PARK, Md.--University of Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dalonte Hill is taking a leave of absence from the program effective immediately.
Hill spent the past two season as an assistant coach with the Terps.
"I appreciate the support and encouragement I've received from Coach Turgeon and the athletic department," Hill said. "But at this time it is in my best interest ti take a leave of absence form the MD bball program and focus my attention on some personal matters that nee to be dealt with immediately."
We will support him through this process, " said Maryland men's head coach Mark Turgeon. "We want him to focus his personal life. Basketball is secondary at this point. His primary focus need to be on his health and well-being."
"I accept Dalonte's decision to take a leave of absence," said MD director of athletic Kevin Anderson. "We've encouraged him to take the time he needs to address these personal issues."
