Kevin Broadus is the new head men's basketball coach at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Md.  Broadus was the head coach of Binghamton University's men's basketball team for two seasons including the team's America East Championship team in the 2008-09 season.  In that season Binghamton went 23-9 and defeated UMBC for the conference championship at the Events Center.  The Bearcats got an automatic NCAA Tournament berth where they were defeated 86-62 by the Duke Blue Devils in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Prior to the start of the 2009-2010 season Broadus was placed on administrative leave following accusations of a recruiting violation. That was followed by several player dismissals and his subsequent dismissal as the team's head coach.

Following his two seasons at BU he returned to Georgetown where he was an assistant prior to taking the Binghamton job. Broadus spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach on Mark Turgeon's staff at the University of Maryland.

Broadus replaces Todd Bozeman whose contract was not renewed after this past season at Morgan State. The Bears have not had an overall winning season since the 2012-13 campaign.  Morgan State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Broadus was hired by Morgan State Director of Athletics Dr. Edward Scott.  Scott, who earned his doctorate from Binghamton University worked with Broadus while serving as Binghamton's senior athletic director.  Broadus joins another former Bearcat administrator.  Binghamton native Terrence Lillie is now an assistant athletic director on Scott's staff.
