The Terps will be doing an internal inquiry to figure out the facts of the situation, according to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun. The arrest was not made in Maryland, as a search conducted by Stevens yielded no cases.
Hill is one of the highest-paid assistants in college basketball due to his ability to recruit the Washington D.C. area. This is his first year with the program.
