"Maryland *reinstating* HC D.J. Durkin"
Tue Oct-30-18 08:34 PM by will_5198

          

a kid DIED under his watch while the head trainer told everyone to "drag his ass across the field." Maryland president Wallace Loh is going to take the blame and retire next June. Durkin returns after 3 months of paid leave and no further action will be taken.

what in the entire fuck.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25128085/maryland-board-recommends-keeping-dj-durkin-damon-evans

"We believe that Coach Durkin has been unfairly blamed for the dysfunction in the athletic department," USM board chair James T. Brady said at a Tuesday news conference. "While he bears some responsibility, it is not fair to place all of it at his feet."

In response to Reply # 1


          

definitely worth not firing him

here are two gems from the investigative report:

"Multiple players anonymously complain that the coaching staff would subject teams during meal time to disturbing videos. According to Gus Little, this included videos of serial killers, drills entering eyeballs, and bloody scenes with animals eating animals."

Maryland did "not have a toxic culture...but a culture where problems festered because too many players feared speaking out."

so the head coach is unfairly blamed for letting the strength coach go wild? does the strength coach run the program or Durkin? if either answer is yes, Durkin should be fired

Penn State was the reigning undisputed conference champion of moral abomination and then Michigan State made a run at the title this year. Ohio State made some noise this summer but can't really hang with them.

I feel for the family. The press conference earlier today by the board was a damn joke.
The football program won’t ever be shit. Who the hell would send their kid there after this?? I’m hearing some students are planning a rally sometime this week.

I would say this is an example of a school valuing the well being of it's football program over the well being of it's students, but he's not even a successful coach. They're not even valuing *that* this is just inflicting pain.

Like if you're a parent of a high school football player and he comes into your home to recruit your son, how could you ever trust him with your son's safety?

That alone was reason enough to can him.

it seems that the report came back saying that it was big-school football business as usual OTHER THAN THE INCREDIBLY TRAGIC DEATH OF A TEENAGER ON THE COACH'S WATCH

but they were willing to lean on the notion that this is just sort of how football is done at Big 10 schools

The board couldn't fire Durkin, but the president could. They told him if he fired Durkin, they'd fire him. He's retiring in June but has some "educational goals" at the school he wants to get accomplished, so he doesn't want to go, yet. SCUM...straight up trash.

In response to Reply # 16


  

          

everyone here on the ground speculates that they STILL have no money and that a chief motivator in not firing Durkin is they literally can't afford to. Keep in mind that school president Wallace Loh already accepted blame on behalf of the school when McNair passed, so that's going to be a several million dollar settlement alone.

They're renovating Cole Field House into a football facility, and the fundraising effort was a bitch. You can only go to the Under Armour well for so long before results are expected. It's evident that the athletics department is cash poor.

I don't think they get that until 2020.

Just a mess, nobody in Big Ten country thinks of these schools as rivals, and Maryland had to sever all of their actual rivalries. No one is happy.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25133811/maryland-student-government-protest-dj-durkin-reinstatement


Adam Rittenberg
ESPN Staff Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The University of Maryland's student government association has organized a rally Thursday to protest the reinstatement of football coach DJ Durkin and to demand justice for Jordan McNair, the Maryland offensive linemen who died June 13 from heatstroke he suffered after a May 29 team workout.

Durkin returned to work Tuesday after the University System of Maryland's board of regents recommended his reinstatement after reviewing an investigative report into the culture of Durkin's program. The third-year coach had been on paid administrative leave since Aug. 11.

Jonathan Allen, Maryland's student body president, told ESPN that students are "outraged" by the board's decision. Allen will introduce emergency legislation at a student government association meeting Wednesday night that will call for university president Wallace Loh to fire Durkin. Sources told ESPN that Loh, who announced Tuesday that he will retire in June, only brought back Durkin after the board of regents threatened to fire the president if he didn't reinstate the coach.

"People are appalled at this," Allen said. "When I spoke to stakeholders -- media, alums, donors -- over the last few months, as this has been transpiring, they all said there's no way Durkin comes back from this. And yet he's returning and the president is the one that's leaving?

"When the system fails, the next obvious step is a grassroots push, being vocal and showing the outrage and sentiments students have had with these decisions."


Allen, who hopes to meet with Loh later Wednesday to understand his viewpoint on the decision, said board of regents chair James Brady is primarily at fault for the decisions to reinstate Durkin and athletics director Damon Evans.

"It could not have worked out better for chairman Brady," said Allen, a senior from Florida majoring in government and politics. "He didn't need to buy out Coach Durkin's multi-million contract. He did not need to buy out Damon Evans' contract, did not need to fire a president and potentially have litigation if President Loh deemed there wasn't sufficient cause, bought out Rick Court, who was the root of many concerns, for $315,000.

"The only person who paid, as the McNair family's representative said, was Jordan, and that was with his life. That's why we're outraged."

Allen reached out to McNair's parents, Marty McNair and Tonya Wilson, through their attorneys, and hopes they can attend Thursday's rally.

The student government association announced the rally Tuesday night on Facebook, and as of late Wednesday morning, more than 1,000 people had either confirmed they will be attending the rally or expressed interest. Many student groups have co-sponsored the event, including the college Democrats, college Republicans, the black student union and Maryland's NAACP chapter.


Allen said the initial time of the rally, 3:30 p.m. outside McKeldin Library, could be adjusted because it conflicts with Maryland football practice and he wants players to be able to attend. He has reached out to several players on the team.

"Ultimately, this is about them," Allen said. "If they want to be present, we should be doing what we can to ensure that they're there, and that we're supporting them however we can."

Allen also will propose Wednesday night a dramatic decrease in Maryland's mandatory student fees that go to the athletic department. Each Maryland student pays $406 per year to Terrapins athletics.

"Students have been saying since the summer, 'How am I going to be forced to financially support an athletics department that does not share the same values as me?'" Allen said.

There are almost literally no moral boundaries in the NCAA or pro sports for that matter.

In response to Reply # 43


  

          

I said that unless his team loses a ton while he's DC, he's as likely to get another HC chance as anyone else who's been fired for much less morally repulsive reasons.

In other words, if he has moderate success as DC, he won't have much trouble getting consideration for HC again.

It's a pathetic statement on the morals and politics of profit-based sports.

he didn't fare well enough as HC for anyone to take that type of flier on him and endure the PR hit.

I don't think him running a solid defense overrides any of that.

complete and total bullshit.

what happened to that kid was over the top unconscionable.

25 years ago, that shit was way out of bounds. no way in hell some shit like that should happen in 2018.

and the head coach is responsible for his staff. and his strength coach was, apparently, a psycho asshole (granted, lots of strength coaches are), but that shit was way over the line.

i can't believe they think this is okay.


peace & blessings,

47. "Maryland Punter Says Teammates Beat Him Up For Talking To Investigators"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

so good to see that the culture is not toxic

Deadspin Swipe: https://deadspin.com/maryland-punter-says-teammates-beat-him-up-for-talking-1830160602


The Baltimore Sun is reporting that during Tuesday’s football practice, which was presided over by briefly reinstated and then subsequently fired head coach DJ Durkin, Maryland punter Matt Barber was attacked by teammates who believed he spoke to investigators looking into the death of Jordan McNair and Durkin’s handling of the team.

The Sun was able to speak with Barber, who said the practice began with a handful of his teammates taunting and throwing footballs at him. It wasn’t until the end of practice that he says the attack occurred:

Toward the end of the practice, another player attacked Barber, attempting to punch him in the face, Barber said. While the two teammates were fighting, others tried to intervene and grabbed Barber’s arms behind his back, he said. That allowed the other player to punch Barber repeatedly in the face, leaving him with a black eye, needing multiple stitches on his forehead and a dislocated shoulder, Barber said.

“My jersey was bloody,” Barber says. “I had blood all over my hands.”

The Sun did not name Barber’s alleged attacker because they were not able to reach him for comment. Barber was reportedly wearing a bandage around his head and had his arm in a sling when he spoke to the paper on Wednesday morning.

This situation is sooooooo screwed up. A kid DIED. This isn’t some inane BS about paper writing or slipping $100s into Christmas cards.

A. Kid. Died. And it was caused by the culture of the program and the actions of staff members.

That Board should all be removed for voting to bring the coach back.

Even with firing Durkin now, can't make up for the fact that they tried to re-instate him.
