"The opportunity to join coach DJ Durkin at Maryland and build a program in the Big Ten with him is one which I simply can't pass up," Lembo said. "Returning to the Washington, D.C., area will also allow us to live near our immediate family. My family and I wish nothing but the best for the Ball State football program and university moving forward."
"That is not a fluke," Lembo said of the Bulls' successful jaunt into South Bend. "I talked with the team about the need to move on. As soon as we turned on film of South Florida, it was easy to move on."
