The death of McNair occurred during a Maryland football organized workout over the summer. McNair collapsed after practice and later died from heat stroke.
After McNair’s death, ESPN released a story detailing a “toxic” culture that was established at Maryland under head coach D.J. Durkin and strength coach Rick Court. Durkin and other members of the staff were placed on administrative leave and Court “parted ways” with the university after reaching a financial settlement.
Two months after the incident, Maryland President Wallace D. Loh met with McNair’s parents. He said that the university accepted all “legal and moral responsibility” for McNair’s death.
Durkin is still on paid administrative leave.
