Keith Cavanaugh is the editor and publisher of Terrapin Times.
Keith joined Ed and Steve to discuss the firing of Maryland head football coach Randy Edsall and the future of the program.
Steve asked Keith if he thinks Kevin Plank will do for Maryland what Phil Knight did for Oregon. Keith believes that Kevin Plank can have that impact because of his ability to help lure a new head coach, “all it it takes is one guy. We’ve seen it before with Ralph Friedgen. In his first three years he was able to galvanize the fan base.”
Ed asked Keith who the viable candidates for the Maryland head coaching job are. Keith mentioned a few big names that will be considered saying, “its so early right now, but if you’re asking me who would be the ideal candidate if he was available, it would be Bill O’Brien. There has definitely been some noise about Mack Brown and Greg Schiano who are in television right now, but again the landscape can change so much.”
Keith went on to discuss Maryland recruiting over the past 5 years, and whether the firing of Edsall will impact the 2016 recruiting class.
