Maryland's (current) two best coaches, Gary Williams and Sasho Cirovski, were hired before Yow came to College Park. Friedgen was a great hire, but that project has gone south and Yow was in a bad position with him, James Franklin and Gary Williams - the three most important figures in MD athletics at the moment.

She did a wonderful job in her first ten years, helping Maryland get back in the spotlight. Things got stale and this seems like a good move for all involved.
