REPORT: Danny Manning set to join Maryland Basketball Staff

According to a Washington Post report, Danny Manning will join the Maryland Men’s Basketball Staff. Manning and Terps head coach Mark Turgeon were teammates at Kansas in the mid-1980’s.

Manning spent six seasons as the head coach at Wake Forest (2014-20), where he went 78-111 (.413). He also served as the head coach at Tulsa before his time at Wake, where he compiled a 38-29 (.567) mark.

The National Player of the Year at Kansas in 1988, Manning was the #1 pick in the NBA draft that year (Los Angeles Clippers). He spent 13-seasons playing in the league, and was a two-time All Star (1993, 1994), and won the NBA’s Sixth Man Award in 1998. Following his retirement, he began his coaching career at Kansas, where he worked from 2003-12.

Manning will replace DeAndre Haynes who became an assistant at Marquette earlier this month.

More on this when it becomes official.
