Mark Turgeon is adding former Georgetown assistant coach Kevin Broadus to the same position at Maryland.
CBS’s Jon Rothstein was first to report the news Friday, which the team later confirmed.

Turgeon was able to bring Broadus in after John Thompson III was replaced at Georgetown by Hoya legend Patrick Ewing, who brought in a new staff. Maryland already had the three assistant coaches allowed by NCAA rules, so Cliff Warren will move to Director of Player Development. The Terps don’t currently have anyone with on staff with that title, so Warren doesn’t appear to be displacing anyone with the move.
Broadus gained his reputation as a recruiter after working his way through the local coaching ranks. After playing college basketball and graduating from Bowie State in 1990, he stayed on for three years as an assistant coach. Since then, he’s been on the staff at the University of D.C., American and George Washington before joining Georgetown’s staff in 2004. Broadus has been at Georgetown since, save for a two-year head coaching stint at Binghamton with a messy ending.
Considering Maryland lost a program-altering player in Melo Trimble, it makes sense Turgeon would add an experienced local recruiter and coach when the opportunity presented itself.
