Maryland previously thought it had its next defensive coordinator in Kevin Steele. Unfortunately, Steele bolted shortly after taking the program to join the staff at Miami under Mario Cristobal.

Shortly after Steele’s change of heart, the Terrapins reportedly parted ways with DC Brian Stewart Wednesday morning. Stewart was set to be demoted to DB coach under Steele but is not expected to remain with the program.

Now, Matt Zenitz with ON3  is reporting that Maryland is planning to promote co-DC and DL coach Brian Williams to the full-time DC role. Williams joined the program in 2019 and took over the DL unit in 2020. He served as the defensive play-caller for Maryland’s final 2 games of the 2021 season.
