Gary Crowton "Will Not Return" to Maryland Next Season?

Finally, a <em>good</em> departure.
Finally, a good departure.

The first hint was probably that he started to shop around for a new spot. But I don't think I ever truly believed until now.

Three sources say Maryland OC Gary Crowton will not return to Terrapins next season.

Ha, yes! One down.

Whether this is Crowton leaving of his own volition or Randy Edsall/Kevin Anderson forcing him out, I don't know, although I'm almost certain it will be painted as the former. No matter what, the first change that needed to made was just made. It's a start, at least.

Now, the obvious question: who replaces him, and what's the scheme? We'll hit on that later (it takes a bit more analysis) but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a pro-style scheme more in line with Edsall's past that would better utilize Danny O'Brien's skillset. Before Noel Mazzone got hired away, he was my front-runner, but we'll see what direction they decide to go before long.

Before I leave you, though, two words: Mike Locksley.
