Cliff Warren leaving Maryland for assistant coaching job at UMass

After being moved to an administrative role on Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon's staff in April, Cliff Warren is leaving for an assistant coach's job at Massachusetts, a source confirmed.

In announcing Warren's move that coincided with the hiring of former Georgetown assistant Kevin Broadus, Turgeon said it was done to accommodate Warren's desire to get off the road and spend more time with his family. Warren and his wife are expecting their second child.

There was speculation at the time that the switch was made because of Warren's inability to bring in any recruits since joining the staff three years ago.

Prior to the job change, Warren, a former head coach at Jacksonville University for nine years, had been the lead recruiter for five-star guard Immanuel Quickley (John Carroll). One of the nation's top players in the Class of 2018, Quickley recently announced that the Terps were among four schools he is still considering.

Warren leaves for Massachusetts to join the staff of new coach Matt McCall and rejoin former Terp Jaylen Brantley, who announced after the season that he would play there as a graduate transfer next season.

InsideMDSports.com first reported the news of Warren's impending departure.
