Looks like Richt is going to the U.  I also saw an article today about how he was punished by the NCAA for taking money out of his pocket and giving it to what he thought were underpaid assistants.

Everything I've read about Richt says he's a great guy and good with the media. Outstanding hire for Miami. With how weak that ACC division is he should be competing in no time.

Well there you go.  When this fail and I do think it will fail Anderson has to leave.  They might as well have stuck with Edsell.

Yeah, I don't understand this one, unless no one else wanted the job. This is a great recruiting area, tv time is fabulous with the Big 10, playing against top tier talent. With all the experienced coaches out there, they go for him?

Who would you have liked the Terps to hire? Outside of Richt, I was not impressed with the candidates out there. Unless you consider waiting to see what happens with Bill O'Brien or Chip Kelly and take that risk.

This seems to be the consensus among UMD fans. I think that is because Kevin Anderson set the expectation that this would be a big time hire. However, when you fire your coach midseason you put yourself in a purgatory. Signing day is in February, so waiting for the NFL season to end to see if Chip Kelly or Bill O'Brien will be available would essentially wreck this recruiting class. If you are positive you can get a guy like Kelly or O'Brien, that is no big deal. However, waiting that long not only are you risking Kelly or O'Brien not being available, but you are risking a hot prospect like Durkin not being available as well.

Well Miles is staying now.  I would have back channeled Kelly.  I do not see OBrien coming here but Chip is a real possibility.

Maybe they did that and Kelly wasn't interested? I would have to think USC would have waited had there been a chance of hiring Kelly instead of promoting internally.

Rutgers goes the same route as UMD and hires Chris Ash, OSU's DC. Between Ash and Durkin, OSU and Michigan are sure to lose some other coaches, which is good for the rest of the division.

I don't understand what's not to like about Durkin, except that he's not a big name?

 

Durkin was rated the top recruiter in the NATION in 2012 by Rivals. In the B1G, we need that more than ever and have more leverage than ever. He just led a dominant defensive unit. 

 

Mostly, I also love his contract - huge payouts to UMD if he leaves us early (possible) and good that we only pay percentages of his salary if we fire him.

 

As for "winning a national championship" - while that's the goal, that's not where this team or program are. We are in gaining reputation and performance mode. And honestly, I'd take a guy like Durkin (or Richt) and 100 years of playing good football and comepting in the Top 25 without complaining about the "national championship" being missing. How long did guys like Boeheim (bball) have to wait for a title? Who "will get one" is just a crap shoot unless you get "the guy."

DC I completely agree with you. It is a low risk, potentially high reward hire (low risk unless you count time value of the opportunity cost of hiring someone of Chip Kelly's stature).

I am not a Terps fan, however, I spoke with a Terps fan who is heavily invested and the problem seems to lie with Kevin Anderson. He set the expectation that this would be a big hire, and went as far as comparing UMD to an East Coast Oregon alluding to Chip Kelly all but in name.

I was told the consensus among Terps fans is that Anderson botched the Sean Miller negotiations after Gary retired, and botched negotiations with Richt. I don't know how true any of it is, but Anderson is not a popular guy apparently among boosters.

So I think it's nothing personal against Durkin. However, a coach like Durkin if he does well at a school like UMD, there's always the threat he bolts to OSU, Texas, LSU, Alabama down the road. But I guess that's a good problem to have?

I know people hate Anderson. I think it's misdirected in some ways (cleaning up Yows disaster) but also just totally misunderstood, especially regarding football. Anderson is not trying to build a program that many think, or rather, he's not planning to do it with money. He's using the program to support others and using it to get the B1G promotions - all of which are major wins for the rest of the athletic program and the university.

As for Sean Miller, again, I think it comes to not being able it willing to spend money. In the end, like with Durkin, Anderson got a major recruiting asset that will be worth a lot more than his coaching resume.

I was watching EPSN with a guy.  We started talking about how they were making it sound like the game would be good.  I said UMD would lose by 50.  He would not believe me.
