Todd Bradford Out As Maryland Defensive Coordinator

Maryland will replace not one, but two coordinators this offseason, with Todd Bradford the next to go.


Gary Crowton Moves Into Maryland Administrative Role

News broke on Wednesday that Gary Crowton would be leaving the Maryland Terrapins coaching staff, in what was thought to be just another in the exodus from the Maryland program under head coach Randy Edsall. The school announced today that Crowton would remain with the Maryland program, but in an administrative role. Crowton could be at this position for up to three months, with a salary up to $125,000.

"We thank Gary for his service and wish him well in this new role and beyond," coach Randy Edsall said. The 2011 season was Crowton's first with the Terps as the offensive coordinator that saw the team struggle to pick up the offense and move the football on the field. Crowton's role as the offensive coordinator has been reportedly taken over by Mike Locksley. After the season, Crowton had expressed interest in the Colorado State head coaching position, which reportedly didn't sit well with the Maryland program.

Mike Locksley Hired As Maryland Offensive Coordinator, According To Report

Former New Mexico head coach Mike Locksley is reportedly heading to Maryland, taking over an offensive coordinator position vacated by Gary Crowton on Wednesday. Multiple reports on Wednesday indicated Crowton would not return next season after a disappointing campaign this past year.

Locksley's story is well known by now. His time at New Mexico was marred by strange off-field incidents. With an overall record of 2-26, Locksley was fired in the middle of this past season.

As soon as word of Crowton's departure broke, Testudo Times pointed to Locksley as a possible answer. And now that Locksley appears to be well on his way to joining head coach Randy Edsall's staff, our Maryland blog seems to be happy, citing his recruiting prowess.


The real story, though, is the recruiting impact. In short, Locksley is a DC-area super-recruiter. He's like football's Dalonte Hill. He's not only one of the nation's elite recruiters, he's hands-down the best in this area. He got Arrelious Benn out to Illinois, for Juan's sake.
