No more speculation!! As things officially unfold I will report them. As of this second Ralph is still the Coach, and Leach has not signed. So be it. Let’s take a look at Ralph’s tenure at Maryland.
Friedgen has a 74-50 record in nine-plus years, including the only three straight 10-win seasons in school history (10-2 in 2001, 11-3 in 2002 and 10-3 in 2003). His 74 overall victories rank 10th on the ACC’s all-time list .
• The consensus national coach of the year in 2001 when he led Maryland to its first ACC title in 16 years, Friedgen has guided the Terrapins to seven bowl game appearances, including a school-record four postseason wins. He is one of seven coaches in ACC history with four or more bowl wins and one of eight with seven or more bowl game appearances. He became the 13th coach in ACC history to amass 70 wins with the victory over Duke (10/2).
• Friedgen’s 74 wins are more than the Terps had (60) in the 15 years prior to his arrival. The victory total ranks tied for third in school history and his winning percentage is fourth (.597). He has twice been voted ACC Coach of the Year (2001, 2010).
• Four of the school’s 13 nine-win seasons have come in Friedgen’s first nine years as head coach.
• Under Friedgen, Maryland has posted the second-best turnaround in the nation in 2010 (six-game improvement).
