Maryland backtracks and ultimately chose to fire DJ Durkin

One day after a press conference, delivered by Maryland's board of regents, explaining why keeping DJ Durkin was the right call...Maryland ultimately would succumb to public pressure and fire the controversial head coach. Read the quotes from yesterday and then watch the video from just 2 days ago where they thought they had everything figured out. 

Quotes from yesterday:

"The chair of the Board of Regents has publicly acknowledged that I had previously raised serious concerns about Coach Durkin's return. This is not at all a reflection of my opinion of Coach Durkin as a person. However, a departure is in the best interest of the University, and this afternoon Coach Durkin was informed that the University will part ways.

"This is a difficult decision, but it is the right one for our entire University. I will devote the remaining months of my presidency to advancing the needed reforms in our Athletic Department that prioritize the safety and well-being of our student-athletes."
