Just days after newly hired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo announced he was leaving for the same position with the New England Patriots, Maryland found a quick replacement.
The Terrapins announced that LSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa will be joining the team in the same capacity. Studrawa was at one time, Les Miles’ longest tenured assistant and coached the Tigers offensive line from 2007-2013. He left LSU after this past season to “pursue other opportunities.”
DeGuglielmo was only with the Terps for six days before jumping ship to the greener pastures of the NFL.
Maryland was in search of an offensive line coach after the team decided not to bring back offensive line coach Tom Brattan. Brattan had been one of the few holdovers from the Ralph Friedgen era and was the longest tenured coach on Randy Edsall’s staff. The former offensive line boss had been with the program since 2001.
Studrawa has a very strong pedigree in coming from an extremely successful program like LSU. The Tigers have won double digit games in all but two of the seven seasons that he was in Baton Rouge. With a strong 2014 recruiting class (maybe even stronger if Bishop McNamara offensive tackle Damian Prince commits to Maryland next month) coming in, Studrawa is going to have the cream of the crop to work with in his first season with the Terps.
