Maryland women’s basketball welcomed back former manager Ryland Adkins as its new Director of Basketball Operations on Tuesday.

Adkins graduated from Maryland in 2016 and served as an intern for Libby Ellis, the former Director of Basketball Operations, after previously working as a student manager. In 2013 and 2014, the Virginia native received the Jack Heise Award, which recognizes the service of one team manager.

Adkins went on to run basketball operations at Bucknell, Furman and most recently Richmond before accepting this position at Maryland.

“The University of Maryland is my home and I am thrilled to be coming to the place I love so much,” Adkins said in a press release.

“This women’s basketball program is where I got my start in this field and the program provided me a strong foundation in athletics. Coach Frese is an exceptional leader who provides a positive and supportive culture that promotes success for her entire athletic family. I am excited to work with this amazing staff. It’s a great day to be a Terp!”
