New Maryland HC D.J. Durkin won’t coach in bowl game


Recently hired Maryland head coach D.J. Durkin did a great job as Michigan’s defensive coordinator in 2015, but he will not be with the team for its upcoming bowl game.

Durkin announced the news during his introductory press conference which was passed along by the official twitter of Maryland Athletics.

Durkin comes to Maryland after the team went 22-33 in four-plus seasons under Randy Edsall, who was fired midway through this season. He worked with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh at both Stanford and Michigan and at 37 years old brings a young and fresh approach to a program that has not won a conference title since 2001.

Just how well Durkin’s talents as a defensive coordinator translate to head coaching remain to be seen, but there’s no doubt that this is a big hire for the Terps and fans have plenty of reason to be excited.
