Eric Hayes Settling In to Coaching Role

Eric Hayes (2006-10) is settling in as a graduate assistant coach at Maryland, and the Washington Times' always awesome Patrick Stevens has an in depth story about Hayes this week:
Two years after graduating, he introduced himself to new coach Mark Turgeon and asked what Turgeon thought of him getting into coaching. Turgeon, who has made it a point of emphasis to connect with former players in his 18 months on the job, immediately explored a graduate assistant role.

Turgeon described the decision to add Hayes to his staff as “no-brainer,” even if it does cost the program some money to help pay for Hayes to pursue a graduate degree in minority and urban education. In turn, Hayes gets two years to figure out where he would like to go with his career.
