Maryland men's basketball director of player personnel Cliff Warren is taking a job as an assistant coach at Massachusetts, Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports reported Friday.
Warren spent three seasons as an assistant coach for Mark Turgeon's program after originally joining as the director of basketball operations in 2014. He was named director of player development on April 21.
Fewer than two months later, it appears he's headed back to the bench in a coaching role.
The move comes on the heels of Maryland's hire of former Georgetown assistant Kevin Broadus in April, which shifted Warren's role with the team.
Going to Massachusetts provides Warren the opportunity to remain influential on coaching and recruiting without the restrictions of a personnel position. In addition, it could keep the door open for a potential head coaching job in the future.
The 49-year old coach will join former Maryland guard Jaylen Brantley in Amherst; Brantley moved to Massachusetts as a graduate transfer in April. They'll work with first-year head coach Matt McCall during the upcoming campaign.
