Maryland football hired Virginia offensive line coach Dave Borbely for the same position with the Terps, the university announced Wednesday. This move completes DJ Durkin's new coaching staff, according to a release.

During his second stint at Virginia, Borbely served under Mike London, Maryland's new associate head coach. He joins wide receivers coach Chris Beatty as former Virginia assistants on Durkin's staff.

Borbely's previous stops during his 35-year coaching career include Louisville, Notre Dame, Stanford, Temple, Colorado and Rice. He was an offensive line coach every stop of the way since becoming Rice's offensive line coach in 1986. He got his first taste of college coaching as a graduate assistant at Evansville University in 1981.

The 56-year-old graduated from DePauw University with a degree in history earlier that same year, and received his master's in secondary education from Evansville in 1983.

Borbely has coached in 13 bowl games during his career, most recently appearing in the 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl as a member of Charlie Strong's staff at Louisville.

"I'm thrilled to round out my initial coaching staff at Maryland with the addition of Dave Borbely," Durkin said in a release. "Dave has a wealth of experience coaching the offensive line and he is an outstanding teacher of the game. I know he's excited about working with and developing our student-athletes."
