Report: More Maryland coaching interviews coming this week

As coaches' names come off the board, Maryland reportedly still has interviews to hold with prospective candidates. 

According to a report from FootballScoop.com, the program has interviews scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, though it is not specified with whom those interviews would be. 

Those specific reported interviews aside, a number of names have been floated recently in connection to the Maryland job, among them a "strong candidate" in Michigan defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, as well as former Terrapins QB and current Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich -- who interviewed for the job, per InsideMDSports.com -- and rumblings about Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen. 

MORE TERPS: DUNGY, BROWN 'POPPED UP' IN MARYLAND COACHING SEARCH

Head coach Mark Richt was fired at Georgia on Sunday, and he has an often-mentioned tie to the Maryland program because of his prior work with then-Georgia AD and current Maryland associate AD Damon Evans. That could change things, not necessarily because of the long-shot chance that Richt would end up at Maryland, but because Georgia now becomes another open job that could create a domino effect of coach hirings.

Football Scoop's report is similar to what has been said in the past about Maryland's search being far-reaching, highlighted by FOX's Bruce Feldman saying that a "bunch of big names" have "no interest" in the opening. 

Maryland fired head coach Randy Edsall in mid-October to get a jump on the search process, only to be flooded by other openings around the country -- some expected and some not. That makes the search that much more difficult.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.

The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.

He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
