COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland football has granted quarterback Danny O’Brien’s request for a release from the program to play elsewhere.

Head football coach Randy Edsall announced Monday that O’Brien, lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Mario Rowson were all granted releases from the program.

Edsall says O’Brien, who played in nine games last season, told him he was not committed to the program and wants a fresh start.

The redshirt sophomore completed 150 of 266 passes for 1,648 yards with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The coach says Garcia, a sophomore who started all 12 games at left tackle in 2011, wants to transfer to a school closer to his home in Georgia. Edsall says Rowson, who played in 11 games as a redshirt freshman in 2011, wants to play defensive back.
