Maryland AD: Friedgen to return in 2011
Question of the Day
COLLEGE PARK, MD. (AP) - Maryland’s athletic director says Ralph Friedgen will return to coach the Terrapins in 2011.
Kevin Anderson made the announcement Thursday, which was based on Maryland’s turnaround this year. After going 2-10 last season, the Terps are 7-3 and still in contention for the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.
Friedgen has one year left on his contract after this season. After that, offensive coordinator James Franklin must take over or receives a $1 million buyout.
Anderson says the decision to have Friedgen return next season was “based largely on the improved performance of our team and student-athletes.” Anderson says he will sit down with Friedgen after the season to discuss the future of the program.
This is Friedgen’s 10th season as head coach at his alma mater.
