The last Terps HC to win eight games or more in a single season was Ralph Friedgen. Friedgen guided Maryland to a Military Bowl victory over East Carolina in 2010.
Locksley revealed that before the Duke’s Mayo Bowl, Friedgen wished the current Maryland HC good luck via text message.
Mike Locksley says he received a text from Ralph Friedgen earlier this week, wishing him luck and giving some advice before Maryland’s bowl game.
The Terps last won eight or more games in 2010, Friedgen’s final year as head coach.
