Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon has officially added two former players to his program's staff, a statement released on Thursday announced.

Former guard Logan Aronhalt and former forward John Auslander will serve as graduate managers for the 2014-15 season.

“John and Logan are two exceptional young men who have bright futures,” Turgeon said in the release. “They were outstanding student-athletes and teammates during their time at Maryland. John and Logan will make a significant impact on our team in our first season in the Big Ten.”

Aronhalt played one season at Maryland in 2012-13 after transferring from Albany, where he began his college basketball career. In one season in College Park he averaged 6.0 points and 1.7 rebounds in just over 14 minutes per game. He shot 42.1 percent from three-point range.

Auslander was the lone player honored at Maryland's Senior Night festivities this past season. Though not part of the regular rotation, he was inserted into the starting lineup for the final home game of his college career and played four minutes.
