Terps Hire Defensive Coordinator

Eric and Steve are at Comcast Center talking to Gary Williams, so Eric asked me to relay this news: U-Mass. head coach Don Brown appears to be Maryland's new defensive coordinator.

I say "appears" because Maryland has yet to acknowledge as much, but U-Mass. has on its Web site (and one would suppose that they would know).

In five seasons at U-Mass., Brown compiled a 43-19 record and qualified for the division I-AA playoffs twice.

good bio here. I like the idea of him and Franklin having a healthy rivalry over the next few years to see who gets the reigns from fridge when he retires when his contract runs out.

Welcome to College Park coach Brown! I'm hoping you can pull off a miracle and sign Jelani Jenkins :)
