Maryland expected to promote Warren to vacant assistant position

Maryland is expected to promote recently hired director of basketball operations Cliff Warren to assistant coach, with an official announcement to come later this week, according to media reports. Warren will replace Scott Spinelli, who left the Terps for Boston College last month. Dustin Clark, who had served as the team's previous director of operations, was named assistant coach after former assistant Dalonte Hill resigned in November following his second DUI charge while with the Terps. Warren, a former Georgia Tech assistant, spent nine seasons as head coach at Jacksonville.
