COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland men’s basketball head coach Mark Turgeon announced the hiring of Kevin Broadus as an assistant coach with the program today. Additionally, Cliff Warren will assume a new role as director of player development. 

 

Broadus most recently spent nine years at Georgetown and brings more than 20 years of coaching and recruiting experience to Maryland. Georgetown won three Big East championships and advanced to seven postseason tournaments in his nine years with the Hoyas, including a trip to the Final Four in 2007. 

 

Broadus has coached and recruited five high school All-Americans and 11 NBA players during his coaching career, including Jeff Green, Roy Hibbert, Vernon Macklin, DeJuan Summers, Patrick Ewing, Jr., Otto Porter, Chris Wright, Henry Sims, J.R. Pinnock, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, and Mike Hall. Known as a strong recruiter with outstanding local ties, Broadus has coached at five universities in the metro area. 

“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.”

Upon graduation, Broadus remained at Bowie State as an assistant coach until 1993, before serving as an assistant at the University of the District of Columbia for four seasons. While coaching at UDC, he earned a master's degree in counseling in 1995. Broadus also had coaching stints at American University (1998-2001) and George Washington University (2001) before landing at Georgetown in 2004. 

A native of the Washington D.C. region, Broadus played high school basketball at Dunbar in the District and Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring, Md. He began his collegiate career redshirting his freshman year at Grambling State before returning home to attend Bowie State, where he lettered three years and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1990.

“It is an honor and a privilege to work with Coach Turgeon,” Broadus said. “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.”

 

In addition to his extensive coaching experience, Broadus spent two seasons as the head coach at Binghamton University from 2007-2009, leading the Bearcats to the NCAA Tournament in 2009, and worked as a summer camp coach and counselor for both the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks. Broadus and his wife, Belinda, have four children, Nicol, Milan, Paris and Kevin Jr.

 

Warren will enter his fourth season with Maryland and will assume the role of director of player development.

 

"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."
