More on D. Brown's Hiring

Sorry for the late arrival on the blog. Crazy day of running around and then I did TV again. He’s a brief rundown of Ralph Friedgen’s teleconference regarding the hiring of Don Brown as defensive coordinator.

Ralph said he interviewed three candidates but called about a dozen people. He said he has known Brown for one week and interviewed him last weekend.

“I was very impressed with him as a person and I think he will fit in well with our staff,” Friedgen said. “The fact that he has head coaching experience, his insight can affect us in a number of different ways.”

Friedgen said Brown has an attacking 4-3 defense. It will be more aggressive than Maryland’s defense this past season.

Friedgen hopes Al Seamonson, the interim defensive coordinator in the bowl game, remains on the staff after not getting the job. He will be in charge of the linebackers. Kevin Lempa will now coach only safeties, and Brown will handle the cornerbacks in addition to coordinator duties.

Friedgen said linebacker Alex Wujciak will be out for the spring because he has undergone knee surgery.

Friedgen liked Brown as a recruiter and said he has strong ties in Florida.

School officials told me today that Josh Portis is one class (Spanish) away from graduating.

How do you feel about the hire of Don Brown to replace Chris Cosh?

I dunno how that Florida thing will work out...good luck recruiting there. Lots of good schools to snap up the best recruits.

I like the idea of an attacking defense, though. All that "bend but don't break stuff" was starting to get on my nerves.

Good for Josh. I hope he sees some football success at his new school as well.
