No, this is not about replacing Edsall, sorry everyone. What it is about is the assistant positions that will be open.
According to Prewitt Maryland should have openings for both the offensive and defensive line coaches, as well as wide receivers coach (all the coaches contracts expire soon except for Edsall and Locksley, but most are expected back and Stewart is expected to resign with the Terps).
So, who would we like to see hired, and how will this affect the team and recruiting? I can't imagine that there would be trouble finding a good candidate for the wide receivers coach given the talent at the position on the team, but the line coaches bring up an interesting possibility.
If O'Brien does leave Hugh's favorite university, does that open up the defensive line coach position for Larry Johnson, and could he finally be lured away from PSU? Who would be a good choice for the offensive line, given both the need to recruit and the fact that it's currently the weakest part of the team?
