The Maryland Terrapins have hired their next head coach, as the team has hired D.J. Durkin. He comes to the school after being the Michigan Wolverines defensive coordinator under head coach Jim Harbaugh.
A few days ago, it was reported that Durkin was ready to sign a contract to become the Terps head coach. He met with school officials on Monday.
The Terps finished 3-9 this season. They came back to defeat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Saturday in their final game of the season.
Durkin was in his first year as the Wolverines defensive coordinator. This will be his first full-time head coaching gig for the 37-year-old.
He was with the Gators from 2010 through 2014. He was the team’s linebacker and special teams coach from 2010 through 2012.
Then, he became Florida’s defensive coordinator and linebackers coach in 2013 and 2014 under former head coach Will Muschamp.
He joined the Cardinal staff in 2007 as the defensive end and special teams coach.
