Maryland RB coach, special teams coordinator Andre Powell accepts job at Pitt


Powell didn't have nearly the success with Maryland's running backs as he did with Clemson's, but the special teams unit improved tremendously under his tenure. After finishing 101st in special teams F/+ in 2012, Maryland was 58th in 2013 and 6th in 2014. On the recruiting trail, Powell covers much of Virginia for the Terps Indianapolis, Southwest Florida, South Carolina, Indiana, Baltimore City and Harford and Cecil Counties. His most notable commitments were Will Likely and Caleb Rowe, and he has not current commitments attached to him in the 2015 class. We'll have more on Maryland's search for a replacement Thursday.
