Blair graduate joins staff of Terp basketball

Montgomery Blair High School graduate Kevin Broadus has joined the Maryland men’s basketball program as an assistant coach.

Broadus, who spent nine years at Georgetown, brings more than two decades of coaching and recruiting experience to Maryland.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin to the Maryland Basketball family,” said Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon. “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.”

During his tenure at Georgetown, the Hoyas won three Big East championships and advanced to seven postseason tournaments including a trip to the Final Four in 2007.

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

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

Broadus, who played high school basketball at Dunbar in the District and Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring, 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.

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. He also had coaching stints at American University and George Washington University before landing at Georgetown in 2004.

Broadus spent two seasons as the head coach at Binghamton University, where he led the Bearcats to the NCAA Tournament in 2009 and also worked as a summer camp coach and counselor for both the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks.

Maryland assistant coach Cliff Warren, a Paint Branch graduate, will enter his fourth season in College Park and 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,” said Turgeon. “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.”
