Maryland football is getting a fresh start in 2019.

The Terrapins needed it. After what was a tumultuous 2018, to say the least, new leadership was needed. Maryland found that in former Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley.

The Terrapins named Locksley their head coach on Tuesday. Locksley was a head coach previously at New Mexico from 2009-11 and compiled a 2-26 record there. He was also named interim head coach at Maryland back in 2015, going 1-5 during his 6 games coaching the Terrapins. He was also the Terps’ RBs coach from 1997-2002.

From 2012-15, Locksley was with the Terrapins as the team’s offensive coordinator and QB coach. Now, he’s in charge of the program.

Locksley’s introductory press conference was held on Thursday, and here’s what he had to say:

“I’m not here to just build a winning football team,” Locksley said. “I’m here to build a winning football family.”
