If he loses his job over this, DJ Durkin is the dumbest coach in America as he would be the 3rd Big 10 coach in about three or four years to lose his job via one of these "mean coach" scandals, Tim Beckman and Kevin Wilson preceding him.

Maryland is having a press conference now and it doesn’t look like Durkin will get fired now (at this time).

Strength and Conditioning Coach fired. Presumably for making people run too much (aren't they all?). Durkin remains suspended indefinitely while investigation continues.

Didn’t Maryland have a death? May or may not be related but the school seems to be playing defense.

Yes, and the "real" football staff can have only limited contact with the players during this conditioning, so Durkin has some daylight.

Obviously I have not been keeping tabs, even though I now live in Maryland.

WSJ article today that basically says off season conditioning regimes in CFB causes more fatalities than playing the sport.

I know it's behind a paywall but a real good read.
