One of the nation’s top recruiters on Mark Turgeon’s bench was one of the first interviews for the Morgan State basketball job, sources tell the AFRO. University of Maryland assistant coach Kevin Broadus interviewed for the Bears coaching vacancy after the University decided not to renew Todd Bozeman’s contract.

Broadus, who is rated as one of the 10 best recruiters in America, interviewed for the job prior to the Final Four according to an AFRO source. After meeting with athletic director Ed Scott and President David Wilson, there seems to be “mutual interest” if financial terms can be reached. He would seem to be a perfect fit at the northeast Baltimore school since Morgan needs to improve its talent base and rebuild its ties with AAU programs on either side of the parkway.

Morgan has struggled in recent years because they haven’t been able to successfully recruit the D.M.V. region, which was key to their run of contention during the mid-2000’s. Broadus has ties with all of the major programs and maintains solid relationships from his days recruiting for Georgetown. He was a member of John Thompson III staff that went to the Final Four in 2007 and has also been a vital cog helping the Terps consistently rank in the top 20 nationally in recruiting. He was instrumental in helping sign local players such as Anthony Cowan and Bruno Fernando.

Broadus led Binghamton University to an America East championship and NCAA appearance in 2009. He understands HBCU sports culture after playing a season at Grambling before finishing his Hall of Fame career at Bowie State.

Broadus would appear to be the perfect candidate for the job, although he will basically have to start from scratch.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
