Cliff Warren joined the Georgia State staff in April 2019 after two years as an assistant coach at Massachusetts.

Prior to his stint at UMass, Warren was on the staff Maryland, where he spent three seasons split between roles as director of operations, director of player personnel, and assistant coach. During the 2014-17 campaigns, Warren helped the Terps collect 79 victories and earn three NCAA Tournament berths.

With coaching experience in the ACC, Atlantic Sun, MAAC and Northeast Conference, Warren’s wealth of basketball knowledge helped Maryland during its successful transition into the Big Ten, to the tune of a 38-16 (.704) conference record since the 2014-15 inaugural Big Ten campaign. Additionally, Warren was instrumental in developing five All-Big Ten performers, including all-American guard Melo Trimble.

The all-time winningest head coach in Jacksonville University men’s basketball history, Warren spent nine seasons as the Dolphins’ program leader prior to his arrival in College Park. Warren accounted for 126 victories and led the Dolphins to a pair of Atlantic Sun Championships in 2009 and 2010. He was also named Atlantic Sun Coach of the Year after the 2008-09 season.

A native of Silver Spring, Maryland, Warren completed five seasons as an assistant to Paul Hewitt at Georgia Tech, where he helped the Yellow Jackets win 96 games and make three NCAA Tournament appearances, including the school’s first-ever trip to the NCAA National Championship game in 2004. 

Warren spent three successful years at Siena College under Hewitt, when the Saints went 66- 27, collected two postseason berths and tallied three straight appearances in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament Championship Game.

Warren began his coaching career at his alma mater, Mount St. Mary’s, under legendary program leader Jim Phelan. The Mountaineers reached their first-ever NCAA Tournament in 1995 during Warren’s tenure as an assistant coach and followed with a Northeast Conference regular season title and NIT berth in 1996.

Warren earned his bachelor of science degree in business finance from Mount St. Mary’s in 1990. He then worked with the Mountaineers as a graduate assistant coach and earned a master of business administration in 1993. He was a two-year starter at Mount St. Mary’s and capped his collegiate playing days ranked in the top five in program history for assists.

Warren is married to the former Jennifer Love. The two have a pair of boys, J.C. (10) and Clark (2).
