Mike Locksley Hire As New Maryland Football Offensive Coordinator To Be Finalized Monday, According To Report

It appears that Mike Locksley will soon be officially hired as the new Maryland football offensive coordinator, replacing Gary Crowton, who has been reassigned elsewhere in the athletic department. Locksley's contract is expected to finalized very soon, according to InsideMdSports.com.

hiring of Mike Locksley as offensive coordinator, first reported by last week, likely to be official today.

Defensive back Cameron Chism noted on Twitter that he saw Locksley in the building, presumably to finalize his new deal.

Locksley is coming off a stint to forget at the head coach at New Mexico, as he went 2-26 and was the focus of several disciplinary issues. However, he has strong recruiting ties to the area and is known as a good offensive mind.

Crowton leaves after just one year on the job, during which he unsuccessfully tried to install a hurry-up offense. Quarterback Danny O'Brien, who was the top freshman in the ACC a year ago, regressed under Crowton.
