Maryland basketball assistant Matt Brady will suspend a six-game suspension imposed by the school on internal violations. His absence began with the exhibition game on Tuesday against Lynn University. Brady will miss the first five regular season games and return to Marshall on November 23.
"We noted some past-year coaching failures over non-coaching responsibilities and decided to lift Matt Brady's release in six games, starting with today's showroom," said Maryland coach Mark Turgeon Statement. "As an employee, we worked fully with our compliance office to make sure it did not happen again."
Brady joined Maryland's staff last summer as head of player staff and was promoted to assistant coaching position in June. Brady was previously head coach of James Madison (2008-2016) and Marist (2004-2008). Previously, Brady worked as an assistant coach for 17 seasons.
Maryland basketball defeated Lynn University, a Division II program, in the 100-67 exhibition game; Newcomer Jalen Smith scored 22 points. The Terrapins season starts next Tuesday with a home game against Delaware.
