“… a tremendously difficult thing for our entire program to deal with this summer.”

I’ll bet.

Earlier this month, McNair’s family announced that the 19-year-old lineman’s death was caused by heatstroke. They have also hired the law firm that represented the family of Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man who died in 2015 after being injured while in police custody, and are exploring their legal options. Durkin, who was at the workout with the rest of the Maryland coaching staff, declined to provide further details of that day while Maryland is still participating in an external review.  [Emphasis added.]

Yeah, I can see how the head coach’s presence at a workout that led to a player’s death might be a difficulty.  Good luck with that review, fellas.

    If anyone has ever seen The Junction Boys, it is a miracle that Bear Bryant didn’t kill half the Texas A&M team that summer if even a small amount of what went on there is accurate.

      I agree. I played for a coach that didn’t believe in H2O in practices that lasted 4 hours and had salt pills out .It’s a wonder there wasn’t any deaths

        You were probably a little more accustomed to the temperature outside and spent most of you’re waking hours in the great outdoors. That’s not the case for a lot of the new generations. It matters.
