Maryland staff changes
By ESPN.com staff
Maryland defensive coordinator Don Brown and receivers coach Lee Hull will remain on the coaching staff, the school announced on Tuesday.
Brown spent the last two seasons as Maryland’s defensive coordinator, while also overseeing the cornerbacks. Maryland ended the regular season ranked 38th in the FBS in points allowed (22.3 per game) and tied for 17th in red-zone defense (74 percent). The Terps were also ninth nationally in passing efficiency defense (107.4 rating).
Hull oversaw the receiving corps the last three seasons. Under Hull’s guidance, Torrey Smith was a two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference performer. Smith posted 67 receptions for 1,055 receiving yards and a school-record 12 touchdown catches in 2010.
Edsall is expected to announce the remainder of his staff over the course of the next few weeks. Longtime linebackers coach Al Seamonson was not retained.
