Maryland Gives Gary Crowton New Role

Former Maryland offensive coordinator Gary Crowton is not leaving the Terrapins athletic program just yet. The Washington Post's Terrapins Insider account tweets that he has a new job in College Park.

Gary Crowton will move into a non-coaching administrative role in the athletic department. Terms: "can be for up to 3 months" max $125,000.

This would appear to be part of Crowton's negotiated buyout from the university set into motion after officials at Maryland became upset with the coach after courting coaching jobs elsewhere. The Terrapins, who finished the 2011 season 2-10 and will not appear in a bowl game, were ranked No. 89 nationally in scoring offense, averaging just 23.1 points per game. Maryland lost eight consecutive games to close its 2011 season.
