TE coach John Dunn to serve as Maryland's recruiting coordinator

By Steve Yanda

Maryland coach Randy Edsall said in an email Monday night that tight ends coach John Dunn will serve as his staff's recruiting coordinator.

Edsall also said that wide receivers coach Lee Hull, a holdover from former coach Ralph Friedgen's staff, will be the Terrapins' primary recruiter in Prince George's County. However, Edsall noted that "all of my coaches will have a piece of Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia."

Dunn, who is in the first full-time assistant coaching position of his career, spent the last three seasons as a graduate offensive assistant at Louisiana State. While with the Tigers, Dunn worked with Gary Crowton, who Edsall recently hired to be Maryland's offensive coordinator.

A quarterback and tight end for North Carolina from 2001-03, Dunn worked as a student assistant for one season with the Tar Heels while finishing his undergraduate degree. He then served as a quality control assistant for one season before spending his final two seasons in Chapel Hill as a graduate assistant.

Well, he seems to be off to a flying start since, according to the BMore Sun, the TE from NJ will sign with VPI, and the huge OT is heading for Vandy. On top of that the Dematha RB hasn't got the grades to go anywhere but prep school. However, another DT from FL is in the fold. Hopefully, some of those ex-Pitts will be coming our way.

I don't think it's fair to blame Dunn for these recruits leaving, if that's what you mean by "flying high." Let's give him a few months to see what he can do.
