University of Maryland assistant men’s basketball coach Bruce Shingler was sentenced to 30 days in jail after the school was arrested Wednesday night on charges of soliciting a prostitute.

According to documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun, the 40-year-old Shingler responded to a website ad about “women looking for men” posted by a secret detective for a special task force of Prince George County police.

The investigator who posted the ad on Oct. 14 received a text from Shingler, who said he would eventually contact the coach when he arrived at the Holiday Inn hotel in Largo.

According to court documents, Shingler confirmed he wanted to have sex when he entered the hotel room and exchanged the $ 80 fee. When Shingler gave the money to the investigator, he alerted the arrest team.

Shingler is currently awaiting trial, scheduled for Feb. 28. She faces a maximum one-year prison sentence and / or a $ 500 fine under Maryland law for calling a prostitute.

The Maryland school newspaper said Shingler was suspended for “breach of employment contract.”

Interim Maryland head coach Danny Mann did not comment further on the situation following Wednesday night’s 94-87 victory over the Northwest team.

Bruce Shingler was disqualified for 30 days

“We just keep our heads above the water and move forward,” he said. “As we continue down this path, we’ll see how it plays out.”

I would add that he doesn’t have to appoint an assistant to replace Shingler once everything has happened “quickly”.

Shingler, who lives in Maryland, mentioned his wife in a statement when he was introduced as an assistant in June.

“According to a personal note, Maryland is home. I was a Terp who played games at Cole Field House. My mother lived on the street directly on campus. My wife, Lauren St. John’s College. “We can’t wait to get to campus and run to the ground,” he said.

Shingler and his wife, Loren, have a son, Jovonni, and two daughters, Brooklyn and Savannah.

Prior to being hired in Maryland, Shingler spent five seasons as an assistant in South Carolina, where Gamecocks helped the program reach its first Final Four in the 2016-17 season.

Shingler was also an assistant at Towson from 2012 to 2016 and worked in Morgan and Kansas.
