Former Virginia offensive line coach Dave Borbely has been hired to take the same position on new head coach DJ Durkin's staff at Maryland, the team announced officially on Wednesday afternoon.
Borbely is the third coach on Maryland's staff to have direct ties to the 2015 Cavaliers, along with former Virginia head coach Mike London (now the Terrapins' defensive line coach and associate head coach) and running backs coach Chris Beatty (now the Terrapins' wide receivers coach).
“I’m thrilled to round out my initial coaching staff at Maryland with the addition of Dave Borbely,” Durkin said in a statement. “Dave has a wealth of experience coaching the offensive line and he is an outstanding teacher of the game. I know he’s excited about working with and developing our student-athletes.”
Borbely has in the past served under head coach Charlie Strong at Louisville and on-staff at D-II Colorado State-Pueblo, where he won a national title in 2014.
Maryland has put a recruiting emphasis on the offensive line since coming into the Big Ten. That began with five-star Damian Prince in the class of 2014, followed by four-star Quarvez Boulware in 2015, and a pair of four-stars commits -- Richard Merritt and Terrance Davis -- in 2016.
