Dalonte Hill hasn’t been a college coach since he left Maryland basketball after his second DUI in as many years in 2013, but it appears he’s about to make a comeback.
Hill will become an assistant on Mark Figger’s staff at Austin Peay, according to Jeff Ermann of InsideMDSports.
Hill has been coaching AAU ball since he left Maryland, and was incarcerated following another DUI in 2015. He’s been hoping for another chance at coaching at the college ranks, and now he might have it.
He was responsible — at least in large part — for Melo Trimble committing to Maryland. Roman Stubbs went in-depth on Hill for The Washington Post last year. No one was there to pick Hill up when he got out of jail, and he’s been sober since.
