Former NBA guard Michael Adams, who joined the St. Bonaventure staff as an assistant in May, has left the program for family reasons, a source told The Buffalo News.
Adams, a college teammate of Bonnies coach Mark Schmidt, spent the past season as coach of Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C., after two seasons under Gary Williams at Maryland. The source said Adams was torn because he wanted to see his son, Michael Christian, play his senior season. An emotional Adams informed Schmidt of his decision last week.
Schmidt, however, moved quickly for Adams' replacement and will hire Central Connecticut State assistant Steve Curran, the source said. Curran worked with Schmidt at Robert Morris and with Buffalo native Rob Lanier when he was the head coach at Siena.
