Maryland Terrapins football Jordan McNair death DJ Durkin scandal timeline

SC football coach Will Muschamp defended former assistant D.J. Durkin on Saturday, accusing the media of irresponsibly sharing anonymous accounts of alleged "toxic culture" inside the Maryland football program.

The allegations in the story include ones of verbal and mental abuse that have contributed to a "toxic" culture at Maryland, which has already been under self-appointed external investigation following the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair following a workout.

"At this time, the best decision for our football program is to place".

UMD's football program came under scrutiny this year after McNair, a 19-year-old offensive linebacker, was hospitalized following a team workout and later died at the hospital. Heatstroke was eventually determined to be the cause of his death.

Ben Jealous, a candidate for Maryland governor, is also calling for the suspensions of Durkin and Evans, until an investigation into McNair's death has been finished. The report from ESPN shared the scary details surrounding McNair's death, which called into question the Maryland training staff.

Muschamp's claim that there's no credibility in anonymous sources is also laughable.

While not every investigation is complete, there were major developments Friday afternoon, as ESPN released an article detailing a "toxic culture" behind the scenes, including several eyewitness accounts of the day Jordan McNair suffered his heatstroke. If that former staffer had any guts, why didn't he put his name on it?

Evans said he was extremely concerned by the allegations of "unacceptable behaviors" by members of the Maryland football in the ESPN report.

Earlier Saturday, a person who had been briefed on the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that Court had been placed on leave by the school. We are committed to fully investigating the program.
