MM 12.23: Mason Baggett replaces Matthew Fyle as associate director of football performance

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.


Maryland football went through a thorough makeover this past week, adding multiple solid recruits on Early National Signing Day, while also promoting assistant strength and conditioning coach Mason Baggett to take over as the associate director of football performance.

Following the departure of former Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning Matthew Fyle, Baggett — who has been a part of the staff since 2016 as an assistant strength and conditioning coach — was promoted to the position.

Baggett had previously served as an assistant strength coach at East Carolina University from 2008-11 and spent just over a year as an associate strength and conditioning coach with the University of Illinois football program.

Director of Strength and Conditioning Ryan Davis took to Twitter to congratulate Baggett on his promotion.

Before coaching in College Park for less than a year, Fyle served as the an associate strength and conditioning coordinator for the University of Oregon. He also spent time with the University of Georgia and the Atlanta Falcons.

Fyle announced his new position as the strength and conditioning coordinator at UNLV on Twitter with an extensive thank you to the Maryland football program Friday.
