Locksley tapped as Maryland's head football coach

Locksley at Maryland

This has always been a special place for me and my family, and I am honored to take on this role at the state's flagship institution.

Locksley also played an integral role working with quarterbacks coach Dan Enos in the development of Heisman finalist Tua Tagovailoa.

After a tumultuous 2018 college football season, Maryland has finally found its new head coach. After his stint there, Locksley took over as the offensive coordinator at Maryland and then served as the team's interim head coach for six games - going 1-5. "Our focus will always be to help them become more successful in all areas of their life through their association with our program". The Crimson Tide also ranks No. 7 in both total offense (527.6 yards per game) and passing offense (325.5 ypg).

He has the pedigree of having spent the past three years with coach Nick Saban at top-ranked Alabama and was this week named the this year's Frank Broyles Award victor, given annually to the nation's top assistant in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

He oversaw the running backs there from 1997 to 2002. Following stints as the defensive coordinator at Florida and Michigan, Durkin went 10-15 in his first two seasons leading the Terps.

NSW Police Outline New Developments Leading To Arrest Of Chris Dawson
The new evidence helped police "tie pieces of the puzzle together", NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller told reporters in Sydney . Magistrate Dennis Kinsella denied Mr Dawson's bail application, saying he was an unacceptable risk of failing to appear.

This brings good news for a program that has battled numerous controversies in the last few months, including the Board of Regents' unpopular move to reinstate Coach DJ Durkin after one of his players, Jordan McNair, died from heat stroke.

The controversy reached as high as the University System of Maryland's Board of Regents, which briefly chose to keep the head coach after concluding its investigation - only to promptly do an about-face and fire him one day later, after a groundswell of outrage at the decision.

Another head coaching vacancy has been filled. However, after massive backlash, school president Wallace Loh overruled the decision and terminated Durkin the next day.

On top of that, four games into the 2010 season, Locksley was sacked at New Mexico amid off-field controversies, including a complaint of sexual harassment and age discrimination that was later dropped and a physical altercation with an assistant coach that resulted in 10 days of unpaid leave for Locksley.

"I have been tremendously impressed at how the team came together through a hard season and honored their fallen teammate, Jordan", he said in a statement issued by the school. "Thank you to Damon Evans, President Loh and the entire Terrapin community for this opportunity", Locksley said.
