PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Men's Basketball Program is pleased to announce that Graduate Assistant Coach Nick Robinson has been promoted to Assistant Coach.

Robinson, who is in his first season with UMES came highly recommended to Head Coach Frankie Allen. Upon his hiring this season Allen said, "Nick was someone that was well recommended by the people who run the prestigious five star basketball camps. He has a strong work ethic and attention to detail."

The promotion, effective March 1, 2009, is due to the resignation of former Assistant Coach, Shawn "Reds" Smith who left to handle some personal matters. Smith was in his second season with the Hawks and was known for his recruiting connections in the Philadelphia area.

Robinson, Coach Allen and the rest of the Hawk's coaching staff will take the team into the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Tournament for their first round game on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. The event is held in Winston-Salem, N.C. at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The Hawks take on the sixth seeded Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman University.
