Maryland has officially welcomed a new member to its football staff.

On Monday the Terrapins announced that Jason Wooding has officially joined the program as the associate strength and conditioning coach. He comes to Maryland after spending the last two years with the Texas Tech football program, where he was in the same role.

Prior to taking a job with the Red Raiders in 2019, Wooding worked with the Houston Cougars’ men’s basketball team for the 2018-19 season.

Wooding is a native of Langley Park, Maryland and earned his degree at Howard University, where he also played football. He played on both sides of the football, fitting in at linebacker and running back during his career.

Wooding was a graduate assistant at Mercer from 2017-18 and earned his master’s degree from the university in 2018.

Maryland is coming off a season in which it finished the year 2-3, defeating Minnesota and Penn State. Head coach Mike Locksley is entering his second year as the head coach of the Terps and he owns a 5-12 record with the program.
