The University of Maryland has retained the services of a national search firm to help in its pursuit of a new football coach, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The school fired DJ Durkin on Oct. 31 after 2½ months of speculation and uncertainty surrounding its football program and has apparently wasted little time in beginning the hunt for a capable replacement. A spokesperson for the athletic department declined to comment. Athletic Director Damon Evans said in an interview Tuesday that he could not share any timetable or details about the search a new coach. Another person familiar with the situation said the school is using Atlanta-based Parker Executive Search. The coaching carousel is already spinning with high-profile jobs open at Louisville and Kansas. More will be coming, and head-coaching seats could grow hotter at Rutgers, North Carolina and Kansas State, among others these next few weeks. Evans’s own status was uncertain until Maryland President Wallace D. Loh accepted a recommendation from the University System of Maryland Board of Regents to keep him in charge of the department. – Rick Maese, washingtonpost – Read More
