Gary Crowton To Leave Maryland Football Program Before Next Season, According To Report

The Maryland football team has already lost several players to transfer following a 2-10 season. Now, they will lose one of their coaches. Gary Crowton, the team's much-maligned offensive coordinator, is expected to leave the program, according to Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post.

Three sources say Maryland OC Gary Crowton will not return to Terrapins next season.

Crowton came to the program last year from LSU, where he wore out his welcome. He attempted to install a fast-paced offense for the Terps and new coach Randy Edsall, but incumbent quarterback Danny O'Brien struggled to pick it up and was benched for C.J. Brown.

Crowton had signed a three-year contract to come to Maryland from LSU, and despite the Terps' much-publicized athletic budget shortfall, it appears he will last in Maryland for just one year. It remains unclear how he will be replaced.
