Former Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Keith Booth has found a new home. Booth, who spent seven seasons on Gary Williams' staff, was hired Monday as an assistant for the Loyola women's basketball team. "We are ecstatic to have Keith Booth join our Loyola women's basketball program and excited that he is able to return home to Baltimore to continue his coaching career," Loyola coach Joe Logan said.
