Most days after practice, Maryland forward Jake Layman will linger to work with assistants Scott Spinelli and Eric Hayes on getting over screens and on-ball defense. At other times, he'll put up extra shots with teammates.
Maryland's men's basketball assistant coaches made $692,320 last season, a 59.9 percent increase over the previous set of assistants.
One coach made it to the game when he wasn't expected to. Another didn't come close to reaching the finish.
Maryland couldn't bring a victory back to its locker room for Mark Turgeon to savor Wednesday night at Miami.
"I think he was trying to send a message to our guys that he's a fighter," said Spinelli, who is in his sixth year as a member of Turgeon's staff. "He's very passionate about his players."
"You never want the head coach to get thrown out of a game," said Maryland assistant Scott Spinelli, who took over after Turgeon's departure.
