After Thursday's surprising announcement that longtime coach Gary Williams is retiring, Robert Ehsan will become Maryland Terrapins basketball's acting head coach, according to a tweet by the Washington Times' Patrick Stevens. Ehsan has been a member of Williams' staff for six seasons, last year holding the position of assistant coach. There's no telling how long he'll hold the position for.
Much of Ehsan's experience on the Maryland staff was directly involved with recruiting and scouting. He also helped coordinate off-court activities like Williams' summer camps. He's a former UC-Davis starting point guard who graduated college only six years ago with an economics degree. As a senior, he proved to be a sharp free throw shooter, so all right!
Ehsan's first two years in College Park were spent as a graduate assistant before he moved up to become assistant recruiting coordinator.
