Leach To Interview At Maryland

[HT: Baltimore Sun]

Time for a shameless plug. If your a passionate Maryland Terrapin fan then Jeff Barker's blog in the Baltimore Sun is assignment reading. Barker's latest blog says that former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach is interviewing as soon as today for the Maryland job.
Leach was the only name confirmed that was on the list of candidates of Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson. Anderson revealed that card in the press conference announcing the firing of Ralph Friedgen.

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Leach was on the College Park campus on Sunday.,0,6906670.story

It is OSG's opinion that Leach originally was the guy all along Anderson wanted however Gus Malzahn is gaining momentum as well. reported that Malzahn interviewed for the position last Wednesday and an announcement could be within 48 hours.

As long as Malzahn is in the mix his stock will rise. Malzahn is young, has a highly successful offensive system and would have an impact with all that young talent in the Terps staple. Malzahn would be a breakout star in the ACC.
