Kevin Broadus hired as Terps assistant

On Friday, April 21, Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball head coach Mark Turgeon announced assistant coach Cliff Warren will assume a new role as the team’s Director of Player Development and the hiring of Kevin Broadus as a new assistant coach for the program.

In a statement released by the school, Turgeon said Warren desired to take a lesser role so he could tend to family matters and he will have the opportunity to do so in his new role. Warren was an assistant coach for the Terps the past three seasons.

Broadus, a native of Silver Spring, joins Maryland with more than 20 years of coaching and recruiting experience. Most recently he was an assistant coach at Georgetown for the past six season. It was his second stint as an assistant coach for the Hoyas. He was also there from 2004 to 2007 and helped in the Hoyas’ trip to the Final Four in 2007.

Broadus has coached in five universities in the Washington DC metropolitan area. He was an assistant coach at his Alma Mater Bowie State until 1993 before becoming an assistant at the University of District of Columbia for four seasons. He also held jobs at American University from 1998 to 2001 and George Washington University from 2001 to 2004. Brodus eventually became an assistant coach at Georgetown in 2004 and road the Final Four trip to his first NCAA head coaching job.

He served as the head coach at Binghamton University for two seasons and took the Bearcats to the 2009 NCAA Tournament. His time with the Bearcats had a messy ending that resulted in him being fired following implications of recruiting violations and off-the-court issues involving several of his team’s players. Binghamton was eventually cleared of major violations and Broadus received a $1.2 million settlement from the school.

Eventually, Broadus returned to Georgetown to be one of John Thompson III’s top recruiters.

Broadus also worked summer camps for the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks throughout his career.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin to the Maryland Basketball family,” Turgeon said in a statement from the school. “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 in his ties to this region and will be extremely valuable to our program.”

Broadus has coached and recruited five high school All-Americans as well as 11 NBA players, a list including Jeff Green, Roy Hibbert, Vernon Macklin, DeJuan Summers, Patrick Ewing, Jr., Otto Porter, Chris Wright, Henry Sims, JR Pinnock, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, and Mike Hall.

“It is an honor and a privilege to work with Coach Turgeon,” Brodus said in the school’s statement. “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 n 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.”

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
