Burton Promoted To Associate Head Men’s Basketball Coach

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine— Head Men’s Basketball Coach and Director of Athletics Matt Richards has appointed AJ Burton to the position of Associate Head Coach effective this 2018-19 season.

In his first two seasons as an assistant, Burton helped the SeaWolves to a 41-18 mark, 23-7 in Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC) play. Men’s Basketball captured its third YSCC title in 2017 to make a United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Tournament appearance in the same year.

Coach Richards commented, “Coach Burton is so influential to the successes of this program. His engagement with our guys on and off the court has had such positive effects in developing team culture and academic achievement—this day-to-day in addition to off-season workouts, video breakdown, and practice planning. Associate Head Coach suits him well.”

In addition to his duties on the hardwood, Coach Burton works as an adjunct faculty member in the Sport Management degree program and also as game management staff in the fall and spring seasons.
