Maryland assistant men's basketball coach Kevin Broadus has emerged as a “serious candidate” to fill the head coaching vacancy at Morgan State, two sources with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday.
Broadus has been at Maryland for two seasons and coached nine years in two different stints at Georgetown. Between his stints with the Hoyas, Broadus spent two seasons as head coach at Binghamton University in upstate New York.
After going 37-24 in the two years, including winning 23 games his second year and taking the team to the 2009 NCAA tournament, Broadus resigned amid an NCAA investigation that turned up no major violations and only secondary violations against one of his assistant coaches.
Broadus was also the lead recruiter on the three players committed for 2019, twin big men Makhi and Makhel Mitchell of Washington and 6-foot-6 forward Donta Scott of Philadelphia, as well as for 2020 commit Marcus Dockery, a point guard from Bishop O’Connell High in Northern Virginia.
Broadus is currently spearheading the recruitment of four-star prospect Lester Quinones, a 6-5 shooting guard at the IMG Academy in Florida who is eligible to play next season. Quinones is reportedly choosing between Maryland, Memphis and LSU.
