Maryland Football Completes Buyout Of Defensive Coordinator Todd Bradford's Contract, According To Report

The Maryland football program has completed a contract buyout of defensive coordinator Todd Bradford, according to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun. Barker reports that the Terps plan to "act quickly" to find a replacement. An official announcement is expected later Friday.

Bradford held the job for just one year, but in that year, the Terps' defense fell apart, falling to 108th nationally. Injuries and suspensions played a key role, but the defense was faltering even before those things happened. Bradford, the former linebackers coach, received a promotion after former defensive coordinator Don Brown abruptly left for Connecticut last winter. The Terps offered the job to former Miami coach Randy Shannon, but he declined it.

The Terps' new defensive coordinator will have a strong returning cast next season, with defensive tackle Joe Vellano expected to come back and linebacker Kenny Tate receiving a medical hardship.
