COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland hired former Rhode Island basketball coach David Cox as an assistant.

Prior to that, Cox was an associate head coach at Rhode Island and Rutgers, an assistant coach at Georgetown and a director of operations at Pittsburgh.

Cox, who grew up in Landover, Maryland, has coached high school and AAU basketball in the area.

Cox went 64-55 at Rhode Island, including 15-16 this season.
