Maryland coach Terry Rupp has resigned after leading the Terrapins to a 227-271 record in nine seasons. Maryland went 27-27 this year, 10-20 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
“I thank coach Rupp for his nine years of hard-working and tireless service to the University,” associate athletics director for compliance/baseball sport supervisor Dan Trump said in a statement. “Terry has conducted himself in a first-class manner throughout his tenure in College Park and I have appreciated his dedication to the program.
“To his credit, he is leaving the program in a position where we expect for our current and incoming student-athletes to have the opportunity to advance to the ACC and NCAA tournaments in the very near future. We appreciate everything he has done as the Terps’ head coach and wish him the best in his future endeavors. Our national search for coach Rupp’s successor will begin immediately.”
This job could be appealing if Maryland would make a stronger commitment to its program in the form of facilities upgrades and more scholarships—the baseball program is not fully funded. In the meantime, it’s hard to see too many of the top assistant coaches and mid-major head coaches expressing too much interest in this job.
