This is absolutely great news for Randy Edsall and the University of Maryland. Crowton is former head coach of BYU and Louisiana Tech but has not stood out at LSU. I will take my chances with Crowton and Danny O’Brien. here is the story from ESPN:
Gary Crowton says he’s resigning as LSU‘s offensive coordinator to take a similar job at Maryland where he will be reunited with new Terrapins coach Randy Edsall. Crowton has been with LSU four seasons, starting in 2007, when the Tigers won a national title. LSU coach Les Miles announced Crowton’s resignation Thursday. Edsall was hired as Maryland’s coach this month. He and Crowton worked together at Boston College. LSU has gone 40-13 during Crowton’s time with the Tigers but ranked last in the Southeastern Conference in passing in 2010.
The thing to point out there is, LSU is an elite program because they get atheletes. The ath’s make more of an impact on defense.
Crowton didn’t have the talent at QB that O’Brien has.
This is a HUGE signing. This will bring a National Title contending offense to MD.
They now just have to get the better players on the O-Line, TE, and D Line.
I still can’t believe this team hasn’t had a rivals 100 in 2 years. How is that possible?
