Former Maryland co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh has reportedly found a new home.
Monday morning, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported that Colorado is expected to bring Brumbaugh aboard after spending the past two seasons with the Terrapins. He’ll be on staff of a new Buffaloes regime, which recently hired Mel Tucker as head coach.

Brumbaugh has had several stops on the college trail as a defensive line coach prior to arriving at Maryland. He worked at Louisiana Tech (2008-2009), Syracuse (2010-2011) and Kentucky (2013-2016). He also was junior college power East Mississippi for one season.
Brumbaugh has had success at his previous stops, but Maryland’s defensive line struggled in the 2018 season. The Terps registered just 18 sacks (112th nationally) and 54 tackles for loss (120th).
Maryland also allowed 183.9 yards per game on the ground, which ranked 85th nationally.
Tucker is assembling his staff at Colorado after Mike MacIntyre was fired this season. The Buffaloes finished the season 5-7.
