“We identified some violations from last season regarding coaching versus non-coaching staff responsibilities and have decided to self-impose a six-game suspension for Matt Brady beginning with tonight’s exhibition,” Maryland Coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. “As a staff, we have cooperated fully with our compliance office to ensure this will not happen again.”
Brady joined Maryland’s staff last summer as the director of player personnel, and he was promoted to an assistant coaching role in June. Brady was previously the head coach at James Madison (2008-2016) and Marist (2004-2008). Before that, Brady had been an assistant coach for 17 seasons.
