Maryland Football: Head Coaching Search Thread


With the Maryland football program constantly conducting their head coaching search, we decided to have an open live thread. This will be updated daily:

The Terrapins are only two days removed from a thrilling 46-41 comeback victory over Rutgers to close out the 2015 season.

On Monday afternoon, it was learned that interim coach Mike Locksley was interviewing for the head coaching job. This was just hours after it was reported that San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich interviewed with Maryland this past weekend.

Several other coaches have been linked to the Maryland job, including Michigan defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, Mississippi coach Dan Mullen, Toronto Argonauts (CFL) coach Scott Milanovich, and now former Georgia coach Mark Richt.

It appears as though Maryland is leaving no stone unturned. The school is looking at several high-profile coaches and the interview process is definitely in full swing.

Monday, Nov. 30

10:43 a.m. – According to Roman Stubbs of The Washington Post, Locksley was scheduled to interview for the head coaching job and plead his case. Locksley is believed to be a much bigger contender now than he was just a month ago. He is also one of the main reasons that prized recruit Dwayne Haskins is still committed to the program.

7:18 p.m. – According to InsideMDSports, Richt could meet with Maryland brass in-person on Tuesday or Wednesday to discuss the vacant head coaching position. Richt and Georgia decided to part ways after 15 years. Richt addressed media at a press conference on Monday and said that he would listen if schools came calling.

Tuesday, Dec. 1

12:30 p.m. – Miami (Fla.) has met with the likes of Butch Davis, Dan Mullen, Richt, and Greg Schiano regarding their head coaching vacancy.
