Kevin Sumlin officially announced at Maryland as new co-offensive coordinator
Kevin Sumlin was officially announced as Maryland’s new associate head coach, co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach.
Maryland coach Michael Locksley announced on Wednesday that Sumlin, a veteran coach of over 30 years, arrives at Maryland after serving one year as the Head Coach and General Manager for the Houston Gamblers of the United States Football League, known as the USFL. Sumlin has been a head coach at the Division I level for 13 seasons.
“Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our staff and I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s joining our program,” said Locksley. “My relationship with Kevin goes back over 25 years. He has a tremendous football mind, along with a proven track record of developing players and winning at the highest levels. I’m excited to welcome him and his family to College Park.”
Sumlin’s head coaching history included stops at the Houston (2008-11), Texas A&M (2012-17) and Arizona (2018-20).
Sumlin was a linebacker at Purdue in the mid-1980s, but offenses were his calling card as a head coach in the SEC. In his 6 seasons at Texas A&M, his offenses led the conference in passing, scoring and total offense twice. His 2012 offense became the first to break the 7,000-yard plateau in total offense with 7,261 yards, and his 2013 unit was just a yard shy of the milestone.
