Maryland down 2 grad assistants during August camp

Maryland will be without two of their main horses, both graduate assistant coaches, during the first sixteen practices in August camp.

The university self-imposed the penalty on the program as part of two rules violations that occurred during last season under former head coach Ralph Friedgen.

The Terps were found to have exceeded the 20-hour rule last season.

According to a release this morning, Maryland used an extra 1.25 hours each week on football related activity.  Also, certain quality control coaches attended voluntary summer workouts last season.

Sounds like Maryland was trying to replicate the Michigan strategy.

As a result, the quality control coaches will not be allowed to observe or participate in on-field activities during August camp this year.  

In reality, things just became a little tougher for coordinators Gary Crowton and Todd Bradford.

The Terps open with four consecutive home games beginning with Miami (FL).  After the season opener against the Hurricanes, Maryland hosts West Virginia, Temple, and Towson.
