Maryland Football Coach Candidates: Mike Leach, Gus Malzahn May Be Competing For Job

If you've been following along with the Maryland coaching search as closely as Testudo Times has, then you know that there are at least two strong candidates out there who could be close to securing the job in the near future.

First we had this tweet from Chris Level of
Have heard from some that would likely be on Leach's staff at Maryland that Malzahn is close to landing it if he hasn't already.
And then it was Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet with a new report:
I've learned Mike Leach was on U of MD campus today, and he's scheduled to meet with the search committee tomorrow

 We heard earlier from Hernandez  that Malzahn had already met with Maryland officials, but Level is taking it one step further with the Auburn offensive coordinator.

Either would be the sexy type pick that Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson seems to be targeting to replace departing coach Ralph Friedgen.

We also heard today from Gene Wang of the Washington Post that Ken Nuimatalolo, the current coach of the Navy Midshipmen who was the quarterback at Hawaii for its first ever Bowl game in 1989, is not a candidate for Maryland's coaching position.
