Report: Danny Manning to join Maryland staff

College Hall of Fame player and former head coach Danny Manning will join Mark Turgeon’s staff at Maryland, Stadium reported Wednesday.

Manning and Turgeon were teammates at Kansas in the 1980s. Manning will replace DeAndre Haynes, who left to join Shaka Smart’s staff at Marquette.

Manning worked as an analyst for ESPN this past season after eight years as a head coach at Tulsa and Wake Forest.

Wake Forest fired Manning after the 2019-20 campaign. He took the Demon Deacons to one NCAA Tournament and finished with a 78-111 record. Manning went 38-29 in two seasons at Tulsa.

Manning was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. He was a two-time consensus All-American and three-time Big 8 Player of the Year for the Jayhawks, which included being named the 1988 NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player when the Jayhawks won the national championship.

He was the No. 1 player taken in the 1988 NBA draft and was a two-time All-Star in 15 seasons.
