Ralph Friedgen Has accepted a Buyout and His Coaching Career at Maryland Ends With Military Bowl

Minutes after winning the Super Bowl, Ozzie Newsome asked Brian Billick why he waited a year before taking the trophy. Billick’s answer–”Thats one more year I will have here before they toss me out.” Ten years seems to be the max number these days before a coach wears out his welcome. Let me get several things off my chest.

Ralph did a tremendous job turning the program back around this year. So much so, he easily earned my vote as ACC Coach of the Year.

Ralph Friedgen was a class act for every day he was the head coach here. He arrived at a period when Maryland football was at a low point and in his first year took us to the Orange Bowl.

Ralph should be honored for his tenure perhaps by naming Terrapin Alley–Ralph’s Way or Ralph’s Alley.

Ralph will be remembered for going out on top ==with a 8-4 record and hopefully a Military Bowl win..

Maryland Football, Military Bowl

    nothing says thanks for the memories more than naming an “alley” after someone. they’re not naming alley’s after ralph. maybe a giant sandwich at big bob’s, but not a road, an alley, a sewer line or anything else after ralph. where do you come up with stuff like that.
