The University of Maryland and strength and conditioning coach Rick Court have parted ways, athletic director Damon Evans said during Tuesday’s press conference in College Park.

In his time at the podium, Evans mentioned that the university had “parted ways” with one of its staff members associated with the football program. When asked, Evans confirmed that it was Court, who had been serving as the strength and conditioning coach for the Terrapins.

Many initially assumed that Court had been fired after allegations of an abusive, intimidating and “toxic” environment surfaced. However, multiple reports stated that Maryland and Court came to a financial settlement.

Court was entering his third year at Maryland but had 16 years of experience in strength and conditioning, according to his profile on the University of Maryland athletics website.

There has been no change in the status of head coach D.J. Durkin, who is still on administrative leave.
