Terps give 3 permission to transfer
Maryland has lost three players and is on the verge of losing an assistant coach.
"I really enjoyed coaching Nick, Shaq and Roddy," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. "It is unfortunate that they will no longer be a part of the program. I wish them the very best in their future endeavors."
Faust started 13 games and averaged 9.4 points for the Terps, who finished a disappointing 17-15 this past season. Peters was a heralded recruit who averaged only 4.1 points and 2.1 assists in 15 minutes per game, while Cleare is a big man from Texas who did not figure into Maryland's future plans.
Maryland also is expected to lose assistant coach Scott Spinelli to a similar position at Boston College, sources told ESPN.
