Greg Gattuso to be named head coach at Albany, report says

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland's defensive line coach was 97-32 at Duquesne.

Maryland defensive line coach Greg Gattuso will reportedly be named the head coach at Albany, according to football scoop.

Albany is an FCS program, a level Gattuso has coached at before. His only other head coaching position came at Duquesne, where he compiled a 97-32 record from 1993 to 2004 with eight conference titles (including six straight to end his tenure).

Many thought defensive coordinator Brian Stewart would be the first Maryland assistant coach to leave for a head coaching gig, but Gattuso makes quite a lot of sense. He's got the experience and success at that level and is a great recruiter -- he was previously the recruiting coordinator at Pittsburgh and generally specializes in that area. In Maryland's 2014 class, he was responsible for bringing in two-star defensive end Brett Kulka, three-star tight end Andrew Gray and three-star defensive tackle David Shaw, but he's also the lead on four-star defensive back Dravon Henry.

Gattuso did a fantastic job on Maryland's defensive line this season, as the Terps recorded 95 tackles for a loss and 34 sacks. Leading the way was Andre Monroe, who had 14 tackles for a loss and eight-and-a-half sacks -- second on the team to Marcus Whitfield.
