This hire will be popular in the circles that believed Gary Williams wasn’t recruiting hard enough and unpopular with those that don’t want to buy into the current system of AAU coaches and other outsiders being involved in the process…

Kansas State assistant coach Dalonte Hill has accepted a position on Mark Turgeon’s Maryland staff, GoPowercat.com has confirmed through sources close to Hill. According to the source, a deal between Hill and the Terrapins was struck days ago, but was delayed until Tuesday afternoon in an effort to give the former Wildcat coach a chance to tell those to whom he is close.

While details of the contract were not made available on Tuesday, Hill’s contract at is said to be significantly less than $423,750 per year base salary he was being paid at K-State, a contract that was set to run through the 2015 season.

Hill spent the last five seasons at K-State, the last four of which were spent with the title of associate head coach. He also served as the program’s recruiting coordinator. He is credited with bringing former No. 2 NBA draft pick Michael Beasley to Manhattan and reigniting the school’s presence on the recruiting trail.

Prior to arriving at K-State in 2006, Hill, a DC-area native, served as an assistant coach at Charlotte, where he also played, from 2003 until 2006.
