Report: Ron Zook no longer an analyst at Maryland
Former SEC and B1G head coach Ron Zook is no longer serving in his analyst role with Maryland, FootballScoop is reporting.
Monday, FootballScoop reported that Zook, who was a senior analyst with the Terrapins in 2019, is no longer with the program. He spent just one season on Mike Locksley’s staff. There was no word on whether or not Zook is in the mix for another opportunity elsewhere.
Zook came to Maryland from the AAF’s Salt Lake Stallions, where he was the special teams coordinator and secondary coach. Prior to that, Zook worked in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers from 2014-2018 in a special teams role.
Zook was formerly the head coach at Florida and Illinois. He was 23-14 with the Gators from 2002-04, leading the program to three bowl games during his time. In 2005, Zook became the head coach for the Illini, where he served from 2005-11.
In seven seasons with the Fighting Illini, Zook compiled a 34-51 record, but led the team to a Rose Bowl appearance in 2007 with a 9-4 record. Illinois appeared in three bowl games during those years.
