Maryland's John Donovan will call plays at Military Bowl
Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said at a Thursday afternoon media conference that running backs coach John Donovan, who is expected to join James Franklin’s staff at Vanderbilt, will remain with the Terrapins through Military Bowl. Maryland plays East Carolina on Wednesday at RFK Stadium.
“I made the decision he’ll call the plays, too,” Friedgen said.
With the departure of Franklin, who served as the team’s offensive coordinator the past three seasons, it was expected that Friedgen, Donovan or wide receivers coach Lee Hull would take over those duties. Ultimately, Friedgen decided to go with Donovan.
In his 10 seasons at Maryland, Donovan has served as an assistant recruiting coordinator, running backs coach and quarterbacks coach.
