Andre Powell hired as Maryland's running backs coach

By Steve Yanda

Maryland coach Randy Edsall has hired Andre Powell to be the team's running backs coach, the school's athletic department announced in a press release Monday afternoon.

Powell spent the past four seasons as the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Clemson. He also has spent time on the staffs at North Carolina (2001-06) and Virginia (1996-2000).

The Maryland running backs coach opened up last week after David Walker left the program to take an assistant coaching position with the NFL's Indianapolis Colts.

Also on Monday, Maryland received a letter of intent from running back Justus Pickett. A native of Charlotte, N.C., Pickett becomes the 21st member of Maryland's 2011 class of recruits and will join the team in the fall. He is a three-star talent, according to Rivals.com.
