Todd Bradford Likely To Leave As Maryland Football Defensive Coordinator, According To Report

The Maryland football team is expected to have two new coordinators next season. Already, offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has been removed from his position, replaced by Mike Locksley. Now, it appears defensive coordinator Todd Bradford will not return, according to the Washington Post.

Bradford was promoted late in the offseason last year after Don Brown left to coach at Connecticut. Under his watch, a once-strong Terps defense fizzled, finishing 108th in the nation in total defense. Bradford changed the scheme and moved safety Kenny Tate to linebacker, a move that didn't work out before Tate was injured.

It's unclear who may replace Bradford. Former Terps head coach Ron Vanderlinden is a name that has popped up in some rumors, but he told Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun that he is not a candidate for the position and wouldn't be interested if the Terps came calling.
