WASHINGTON -- Kevin Broadus is returning to the Georgetown basketball staff, landing a job as a “special assistant” after his tempestuous departure from Binghamton.

Hoyas coach John Thompson III says Broadus will serve as an aide but will not be on the road recruiting.

Broadus has his contract bought out by Binghamton for $1.2 million in October, a year after he was suspended by the school.

Broadus led the Bearcats to their first NCAA tournament berth in 2009, but one of his players was arrested on drug charges and five other players were dismissed for violations. An outside review found Broadus circumvented standards to get a player enrolled and lobbied for a player’s grade to be changed.

Broadus was previously an assistant at Georgetown from 2004-07.
