The 2010 ACC Rookie of the Year is set to leave the Maryland program.
This is (how you say?) not good. From NBC Washington's Dan Hellie:
The move brings an end to O'Brien's turbulent career at the helm of the Maryland offense. Lest we forget, O'Brien was named ACC Rookie of the Year in 2010, when he completed 57 percent of his passes and threw for 22 touchdowns in Maryland's 9-4 season.
However, the 2011 season was a step back for O'Brien and the Terps. The native of Kernersville, North Carolina split time with C.J. Brown after being ineffective early in the season. O'Brien broke a bone in upper arm during Maryland's loss to Notre Dame in November and did not return. He finished the year with just seven touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and a 56.4 percent completion percentage.
