Maryland To Hold Press Conference At 3 p.m. About Future Of Football Program

Maryland AD Kevin Anderson has announced that he will hold a press conference at 3 p.m. to discuss the future of the football program, according to Steve Yanda at the Washington Post's Terrapins Insider.

Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson will hold a press conference Monday at 3 p.m. "to discuss the football program," according to a release issued by the athletic department.

Football Coach Ralph Friedgen has been asked to accept a buyout, though Friedgen has told players to expect him to coach in the Military Bowl on Dec. 29. It is unclear at this point whether Friedgen has agreed to a buyout. He had not done so as of Sunday night.

We don't know whether this press conference is to announce the buying out of Ralph Friedgen, or announce the presumptive hiring of Mike Leach. Hopefully it will be some combination of both. The university has not announced that Leach will definitely be taking over as football coach, but there are reports out there that Leach is already making recruiting calls.
