James Franklin Reacts to Maryland Controversy

Sports

Maryland’s football coach D.J. Durkin is currently on administrative leave after one of his players passed away due to one of the team’s workouts.

Jordan McNair was a 19-year-old offensive lineman who passed away after a heatstroke during a University of Maryland football offseason workout.

The school has since fired its strength coach and placed its head coach on leave after reports of a “culture of bullying” surfaced.
