Breaking news that defensive coordinator Chris Cosh will leave Maryland to take over the same position at Kansas State where he coached under Bill Snyder. I'm not tooting my own horn when I say I voiced scepticism of the Cosh hire three years ago. While Cosh was a decent recruiter the last few years that didn't make up for his abysmal game plans and inept schemes. In his three years as defensive coordinator Maryland finished 10th, 9th and 9th in total defense and had an average finish of 8th in scoring defense. It is possible that the Terps might lose a recruit or two over this move but in the long run it would be a trade off worth making. Now let's hope that Debbie Yow won't play it cheap like she did with Cosh and spend the money to hire a real defensive coordinator.
