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.
