Maryland defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh hired to same position by Colorado

The defensive line coach is the first member of Maryland’s staff to be reported heading elsewhere.

Jimmy Brumbaugh will not be a part of new head coach Mike Locksley’s staff. Brumbaugh, who served as defensive line coach and co-defensive coordinator for two seasons, will join Colorado’s staff as defensive line coach.

Brumbaugh joined Maryland’s staff as a defensive line coach in 2017, while assisting Andy Buh as a co-defensive coordinator. The Terps’ defense improved from 2017 to 2018 with Brumbaugh on staff, but still struggled against the bigger and more physical Big Ten opponents. His son Legend walked on to the team as a quarterback in 2017 and switched to tight end this season.

Brumbaugh was Kentucky’s defensive line coach from 2013-16 before coming to College Park, and had previously served on the coaching staffs at LSU, Louisiana Tech and Syracuse.

Maryland has not officially announced any hires for Locksley’s staff, and there have been no reports about Maryland hiring a new defensive line coach. Locksley’s lone defensive hire is John Papuchis, who’ll serve as linebackers coach and special teams coordinator. The former North Carolina defensive coordinator has helped with Maryland’s recruiting efforts while Locksley is in Tuscaloosa preparing for the Orange Bowl.
