Danny Manning

Head Coach

One of the most accomplished players in the history of college basketball, Danny Manning was hired as an assistant coach by head coach Mark Turgeon on April 26, 2021. Manning and Turgeon played three seasons together at Kansas (1984-87), where the duo ushered in one of the most successful eras in program history.

Manning most recently spent the last year as an analyst for ESPN, following six years (2014-20) as head coach of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and two years (2012-14) as head coach at Tulsa.
As a player, Manning's resume is unrivaled. His list of accomplishments are what young players dream of achieving: NCAA Champion, consensus National Player of the Year, All-American, No. 1 overall NBA Draft Pick, NBA All-Star and College Basketball Hall of Famer. After winning a national title as an assistant coach at Kansas, Manning's years as a head coach included taking two different schools to the NCAA Tournament and winning a conference regular season and tournament title.

During his six seasons at Wake Forest, Manning guided 14 players to play professionally, including NBA players John Collins and Jaylen Hoard. The Demon Deacons had six different players earn All-ACC honors during the Manning era while having six players earn Academic All-ACC accolades. Manning's work in player development was evident with Collins being the named the 2017 ACC Most Improved Player while Doral Moore in 2018 and Olivier Sarr in 2020 were runner-up in the voting for the award.

In 2016-17, Manning helped lead Wake Forest to its first postseason appearance in seven seasons. Wake Forest ranked in the top 10 nationally in offensive efficiency, averaged 82.8 points per game and set school records with 268 3-pointers and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Deacs were led by All-American John Collins, who was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the No. 19 overall selection of the NBA Draft. Following the season, Manning received the Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award, given annually to a coach who had success on the court and shows moral integrity off of it.

Manning came to Wake Forest after spending two seasons as the head coach at the University of Tulsa. He was named the 2013-14 Conference USA Coach of the Year after leading the Golden Hurricane to the conference championship and a berth in the round of 64 of the NCAA Tournament, Tulsa's first appearance since 2003. Manning was also a finalist for two national Coach of the Year awards in 2013-14, including the Jim Phelan Award, given to the nation's top coach, and the Ben Jobe Award, given to the nation's top minority coach.

Manning posted a 38-29 (.567) overall record and a 21-11 (.656) record in Conference USA during his two seasons at Tulsa.

Prior to taking the reins at Tulsa, Manning spent nine seasons on the staff at Kansas, his alma mater. After retiring from professional basketball in 2003, he began his coaching career as a member of Bill Self's first staff at Kansas. For four seasons, he served as Director of Student-Athlete Development/Team Manager. In that role, he was the team travel coordinator, oversaw equipment ordering and distribution and organized and assisted in the youth holiday clinic and summer camp program.

Manning was elevated to assistant coach in March 2007 and helped the Jayhawks win the 2008 national title in his first season in his new position. He also helped Kansas advance to the 2012 national title game in his final season in Lawrence.

During his time on staff at Kansas, Manning was a part of one NCAA national title, two Final Fours, five NCAA Elite Eight appearances, eight Big 12 regular season conference titles, five Big 12 tournament championships and 269 career victories. During his five-year tenure as an assistant coach, Kansas went 164-24 (.872) overall.

When he arrived in Winston-Salem, Manning was the first coaching hire in ACC basketball history to come into the job with NCAA championships as a player and as a coach to his name.

In addition to coaching at the collegiate level, Manning has been involved on the international level with USA Basketball. In 2017, he spent the summer as an assistant coach on John Calipari's staff of the U19 National Team. In 2018, he assisted Self with the U18 National Team. He also previously served as a court coach during U18 National Team training camps.

One of the reasons for Manning's success on the sidelines has been his experience playing for and coaching next to some of the legends of the sport. During his playing career, Manning played for eight head coaches now enshrined in Springfield: Larry Brown (Kansas, Los Angeles Clippers), Denny Crum (1987 Pan American Games), Don Nelson (Dallas Mavericks), Lute Olson (1984 USA R. William Jones Cup), Jerry Sloan (Utah Jazz), John Thompson (1988 Olympics), Paul Westhead (Phoenix Suns) and Lenny Wilkens (Atlanta Hawks). As a coach, he has been mentored by Hall of Famers Bill Self at Kansas and John Calipari with the USA U19 National Team.

At 6-10 and one of the top big men to ever play college basketball, Manning has earned a reputation as one of the best coaches of big men in the country. The latest example of his expertise with post players was John Collins, who in two seasons with the Demon Deacons went from ranked outside the top 100 in his high school class in 2015 to the No. 19 selection in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Manning has coached 15 NBA draft picks, including 10 first-round selections. NBA draft picks during his tenure include big men Wayne Simien, Julian Wright, Darrell Arthur, Darnell Jackson, Sasha Kaun, Cole Aldrich, twins Marcus and Markieff Morris, Jeff Withey and Thomas Robinson at Kansas, in addition to John Collins at Wake Forest.

Manning recruited two McDonald's High School All-Americans, including 2010 NBA first-round draft pick Xavier Henry. He also coached two Academic All-Americans in Cole Aldrich and Tyrel Reed.

A Jayhawk legend, Manning is Kansas' all-time leading scorer and rebounder, finishing his four-year career with 2,951 points and 1,187 rebounds. The 10th all-time leading scorer in NCAA history, Manning was named a consensus first-team All-America selection in 1987 and 1988, the consensus College Player of the Year in 1988 and a three-time Big Eight Conference Player of the Year (1986, 1987, 1988).

Manning was named the 1988 NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player en route to leading the Jayhawks--dubbed "Danny and the Miracles"--to an 83-79 victory over Oklahoma for the 1988 national championship. He was also named the MVP of the NCAA Midwest Regional in 1986 and 1988. Manning's sophomore year in 1986 Kansas finished 35-4 and advanced to the Final Four in Dallas.

Recognized for all of his accomplishments on the court, Manning was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame on November 23, 2008.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 1988 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Clippers, Manning played 15 seasons in the league for seven different professional teams--the L.A. Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks, Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons. He averaged 14.0 points and 5.2 rebounds per game during his NBA career, spanning 883 total games. Manning was a two-time NBA All-Star (1993, 1994), and won the league's Sixth Man of the Year Award with Phoenix in 1998. During his playing days, Manning was a representative for the NBA Players Association.

Manning won a bronze medal as a member of the 1988 USA Olympic Team in Seoul, South Korea. He also won a silver medal for the U.S. at the 1987 Pan American games in Indianapolis.

Originally from Greensboro, N.C. Manning was named to the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame in 2008. He played at Greensboro Page High School, leading the school to the 1983 state title at the Greensboro Coliseum, before transferring to Lawrence (Kan.) High School prior to his senior year. He is also a member of the Lawrence High School Hall of Fame.

In 2012, Manning was named one of the 35 Greatest McDonald's All-Americans in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the McDonald's All American High School Boys Basketball Game.

Born May 17, 1966, Manning earned his degree in communication from the University of Kansas in 1991.

Danny and his wife, Julie, have two children -- daughter Taylor, who played volleyball at Kansas, and son Evan, who played basketball at Kansas and was most recently a graduate assistant in 2020-21 for the National Finalist Gonzaga Bulldogs.

Matt Brady

Matt Brady

Assistant Coach

Head coach Mark Turgeon announced the addition of Matt Brady as the director of player personnel for the Maryland men’s basketball program on July 10, 2017. Brady was elevated to the role of assistant coach in June of 2018 prior to his second season on staff for the Terrapins.

Brady, who has nearly 30 years of experience as a coach at the Division I level, including 12 as a head coach, comes to Maryland after serving as an assistant coach at La Salle the past season. Brady will be reunited with Maryland assistant coach Bino Ranson, who was an assistant under Brady while at Marist.

''Matt is a very accomplished head coach and assistant who under his leadership and direction led various basketball programs to unprecedented heights during his tenure," Turgeon said. "His proven track record in player development and his experience as a head coach at the Division I level will greatly benefit our staff and student-athletes. Matt will make a seamless transition to our staff and we are very excited to welcome him to our basketball program."

Prior to La Salle, Brady was the head coach at James Madison for eight seasons, racking up 139 wins, including four seasons with 20 or more victories. In 2013, he led the Dukes to a CAA Championship and an NCAA Tournament bid. He also guided the Dukes to three additional postseason appearances and the 2015 CAA regular season title.

Brady was recognized as State Coach of the Year by the Virginia Sports Information Directors in 2013 following his NCAA Tournament campaign and was also tabbed District 10 Co-Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Brady inherited a JMU program that finished last in the conference in scoring, field goal and three-point percentage in 2007. The following season, Brady had the Dukes atop the conference in all three statistical categories. While at JMU, Brady coached 10 all-CAA players and four all-district honorees. Brady mentored three of the top 10 scorers in program history as well as three of the top 10 three-point shooters.

Prior to leading the program at James Madison, Brady was the head coach at Marist for four seasons from 2004-08 where compiled a 73-50 record with the Red Foxes and improved their win total during each of his first three seasons with the team. Marist set a program record for wins during its 25-9 season in 2006-07 when Brady was the MAAC and New York City-area coach of the year. Marist had dramatic statistical improvements under his direction, ranking in the top three in the 10-team MAAC in overall field goal percentage, three-point percentage and three-pointers per game during each of his four seasons. While at Marist, Brady mentored MAAC Player of the Year Jared Jordan, who was a two-time NCAA Division I assists champion and the 45th overall choice in the NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers.

A 1987 Siena graduate and a native of Haddon Heights, N.J., Brady was a Division I assistant coach for 17 seasons at Rhode Island (1987-89), Wagner (1989-93) and Saint Joseph's (1993-04).

While Brady was at Saint Joseph's, the Hawks appeared in the NCAA Tournament four times, the NIT three times and won four Big 5 championships and three Atlantic 10 titles.

Saint Joseph's was 27-0 during the regular season in 2003-04, earned a No. 1 national ranking and a No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament, ultimately reaching the Elite Eight. Brady was involved in recruiting several of the top players in Saint Joseph's history, including 2004 National Player of the Year Jameer Nelson and Delonte West, an honorable mention Associated Press All-America selection. Nelson, who was selected in the first round of the 2004 NBA Draft and has gone on to play 12 seasons in the NBA, continues to be mentored and trained by Brady during his offseason.

As a player at Siena, Brady appeared in 114 career games, including 92 as a starter. He completed his career as the program's all-time assists leader (593), and he was inducted into the school's hall of fame in 1993. For his career he accumulated 1,106 points (9.7 points per game) and was a 45.9 percent shooter from the field.

Brady was a standout at Paul VI High School in Haddon (N.J.) Township and was named to the 1980s South Jersey All-Decade Team. He was enshrined in the Camden County Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. Brady and his wife Mary have three sons, Logan - who is a freshman at Maryland - and twins Cole and Griffin.

Greg Manning

Greg Manning

Assistant Coach

Maryland men’s head basketball coach Mark Turgeon announced Greg Manning Jr. as the program's director of men's basketball operations in April of 2021. He had previously served as the team's video coordinator for three seasons from 2018-21.

“Greg has worked incredibly hard for our program the last three seasons and is more than deserving of this promotion,” Turgeon said. “I am confident he will excel in this role as he has built great relationships within our department and will effectively manage the role’s many responsibilities. His family has strong ties to the University of Maryland and he loves being a Terp.”

In three seasons with the Terps, Maryland has advanced to three NCAA Tournaments (including 2019-20 which was cut short due to the pandemic).

In 2019-20, Manning was part of a staff that led Maryland to its first Big Ten Championship since joining the conference and was a lock for the NCAA Tournament before the season was cut short (no postseason) due to the coronavirus pandemic. In Manning's first season, the Terps reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

As video coordinator, Manning was charged with coordinating the internal video needs of the program, including advanced scouting, film, edits and recruiting materials

Prior to Maryland, Manning served as an assistant coach under Jimmy Patsos at Siena beginning in 2013. Manning helped guide the Saints to the program's first MAAC Championship Game appearance in seven years during the 2016-17 campaign. Siena won 13 of its final 19 contests to amass a 17-17 overall record and finish tied for third in the MAAC with a 12-8 league mark.
Manning played a key role in the development of four 1,000-point scorers in Brett Bisping, Lavon Long, Javion Ogunyemi, and Marquis Wright. Siena’s decorated senior class, which also included walk-on Jimmy Merrill, combined to finish with 5,787 career points, and the Saints were one of just two Division I programs along with National Champion North Carolina to feature four 1,000-point scorers on their 2016-17 roster.

In 2015-16, Manning helped guide Siena to a 21-13 overall record and third place finish in the conference with a 13-7 league mark as Siena advanced to the MAAC Semifinals. The 21 wins marked the program's most in six years as the Saints posted a 10-win improvement from the previous season, which was tied for the 12th best nationally, and earned the program's second College Basketball Invitational appearance in three years.

In his first season, Manning helped Patsos orchestrate a 12-win improvement which was tied for the second best in all of Division I. Siena won 20 games and earned a berth to the College Basketball Invitational, which the Saints captured by taking the best-of-three series against Fresno State to earn the program's first Division I national postseason tournament championship.

Manning was an integral part of the revival of Loyola basketball under Patsos, a process that began during his playing career from 2004-08. The Greyhounds went 52-40 in Manning's last three years in the Green and Grey after posting just seven victories in the previous two seasons combined.

As a member of the coaching staff, Manning helped complete the transformation as the program took off. The Greyhounds went 47-21 the last two seasons, reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 18 years in 2012, and advancing to the quarterfinals of the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament in 2013.

Manning’s Maryland connections run deep, as his father Greg Sr. played four seasons under Lefty Driesell from 1977-81. Manning Sr. remains one of the most prolific shooters in Maryland history, ranking third in career field goal percentage (.583) and second in career free throw percentage (.858). The elder Manning also spent 15 seasons as an analyst for the Maryland Sports Radio Network.

Manning coached an 11-player team of top college players against international competition in Belgium and Germany in the summer of 2012. In the summer of 2014 he again took a team of college all stars that included Siena's Lavon Long and Javion Ogunyemi on a European tour of Belgium, England and France, and in the summer of 2015 he brought a team that included Maryland forward Ivan Bender and Marquis Wright to Croatia.

A native of Alpharetta, Ga., Manning graduated with a bachelor's degree in communications/public relations from Loyola in 2008. He spent the summer following graduation attending camps across the country, including the Eastern Invitational in New Jersey and the camps at the University of Maryland and West Virginia University, before joining the Greyhounds' staff full-time.

Bruce Shingler

Bruce Shingler

Assistant Coach

Maryland men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon officially announced the hiring of Prince George’s County native Bruce Shingler as assistant coach on June 7, 2021.

Shingler most recently spent five seasons as an assistant coach at South Carolina, where he helped lead the Gamecocks to their first ever NCAA Final Four appearance. He grew up just miles from College Park in Bladensburg, Md.

“I am excited to welcome Bruce to our coaching staff as he makes his return to the DMV,” Turgeon said. “Bruce was born and raised in PG County and knows the region extremely well, having also coached at Towson and Morgan State, and on the AAU circuit. He checked all the boxes as a coach and recruiter and shares our program’s values. We look forward to Bruce and his family joining us in College Park.”

During the 2016-17 season, the Gamecocks were ranked as high as No. 16 in the AP Poll, and finished the campaign ranked sixth in the final USA Today Coaches Poll.

The Gamecocks were poised for another postseason run in 2019-20, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season ended early. South Carolina had an 18-13 overall record, and another impressive double-figure win total in league play, as the Gamecocks finished 10-8 in SEC action. Those 10 wins marked the fourth time in the last five seasons that the Gamecocks had double-figure wins in the league, amassing 51 SEC wins during the stretch, with only Kentucky (69) and Florida (54) having more during the timeframe.

Prior to his time at Carolina, Shingler spent four seasons as an assistant at Towson (2012-16) where he helped the Tigers set the NCAA Division I record for largest single-season turnaround, going from one win in 2011-12 to 18 in 2012-13. His second season (2013-14) saw the Tigers record 25 wins, their most at the Division I level. The 2015-16 season once again saw the Tigers advance to the postseason, as the team reached 20 wins.
Before Towson, Shingler spent one season as an assistant coach at Morgan State and one season as an administrative assistant under head coach Frank Martin at Kansas State.

Prior to his collegiate coaching career, Shingler coached at his alma mater Bladensburg (Md.) High School, leading them to an 18-5 record in his lone season. He also coached AAU for the DC Assault 17U team, sending over 40 members to Division I institutions in his tenure, including McDonald's All-Americans Michael Beasley, Wally Judge and Quinn Cook.

Shingler earned his bachelors of science degree in communications in 2005 from St. Augustine's College, where he was a three-year starter and Academic All-American.

Shingler and his wife, Lauren, have a son, Giovonni, and two daughters, Brooklyn and Savannah.
