What in the world just happened? I observed a very happy and content Don Brown at the Wednesday night recruit intro event at College Park. Today he leaves? Didn’t he care about the kids who formed an allegiance to him? Wht would he leave like he did? To UConn for the same position. This is absurd.
The following is an excerpt from the Sun about the 3 Florida kids reacted.”I thought he was a good coach,” said Edsall, who will begin searching immediately for a replacement. “One coach or player doesn’t make a program.”
“Brown was an important recruiter for Maryland in Florida and elsewhere. His departure was difficult not only for Maryland, but for those he recruited who signed letters of intent that were announced last Wednesday on National Signing Day. “He was the biggest reason I was going to go and play there,” said Makinton Dorleant, a cornerback from Lely High in Naples, Fla. “I really liked his defensive scheme. He knew everything about me and my style of play. Now somebody else is going to come in that I don’t know, and I most likely won’t know. It’s going to be a big change. But I’m just going to keep competing harder and harder.” “The Maryland coaches called, probably about an hour before you called me,” said Matt Dixon, coach at Felix Varela High in Miami, home of Terps cornerback signee Undray Clark. “And we let Undray know soon after that. He was shocked, a little disappointed, but he loved Maryland, loved the program. So it’s not going to affect anything he does. He was very disappointed. Coach Brown and he were really close.” Another signee — safety Lukas Foreman of Naples (Fla.) High — said Brown “was one of the main reasons” he chose Maryland. “He was the big one. But it was academics, [and College Park was] a good place — a nice place I wanted to be, and he just made it better.”
In addition to replacing Brown, Edsall is also expected to soon hire a replacement for running backs coach David Walker, now with the Indianapolis Colts.
