Maryland men’s basketball assistant Dustin Clark will be leaving the program. Head Coach Mark Turgeon announced today via press release that the seven-year assistant to work closer at his family business back home in Texas. Dustin Clark has been a member of the Turgeon staff since day one and has been a key recruiter in several key gets for the Terps including Kevin Huerter, Anthony Cowan, Bruno Fernando, Aaron Wiggins, and grad transfer Rasheed Sulaimon. Dustin Clark spoke very highly of his time with the Terps saying that “Working for Coach Turgeon and coaching at the University of Maryland has been nothing short of a dream come true… I have felt unspeakable pride everyday over the last seven years wearing Maryland on my chest. This is a special place that loves basketball. The passion our fans have for Maryland basketball, our players, and our recruiting makes this one of the best places in America to play and coach. The future of this program is bright and I look forward to being in the XFINITY Center as a fan and contributing to what I believe is one of the absolute best home court advantages in all of college basketball.” We at Terptalk have gotten to know Dustin well over the last few seasons in College Park, he has always been engaging to talk to and has without a doubt become one of the top recruiters in recent Maryland history.
Replacing Clark on the bench is Matt Brady, who has been promoted to assistant after spending just one year as Director of Player Personnel, but is certainly no rookie. Brady has nearly 30 seasons under his belt coaching at the D1 level, including 12 has a head coach between Marist and James Madison. The Siena grad brings much experience to the table and will hopefully be able to utilize it in a positive way for the Terps.
