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.
