In the weeks following University of Maryland football player Jordan McNair's death from heatstroke, UMD has placed members of their athletic staff on administrative leave. New offensive coordinator Matt Canada will take over head coaching responsibilities in the interim.

Maryland is conducting an external investigation into offensive lineman Jordan McNair's death after a May workout. Like some investigative reporting, it relies on unnamed sources - specifically "two current Maryland players, multiple people close to the football program, and former players and football staffers".

Unfortunately, by the time she got clean, Young had already established a reputation in the entertainment biz for freaky behavior. In 2012, she was arrested for allegedly slapping a security guard at an Oscars after-party, according to Page Six .


Athletic Director Damon Evans said in a statement Saturday that placing Durkin on leave was "the best decision" for the football program so that the "culture of the program" could be reviewed. McNair has difficulty finishing a set of 110-yard sprints and is found to have a body temperature of 106 degrees at a local hospital. Heatstroke was eventually determined to be the cause of his death. McNair's parents are being represented by Baltimore attorney Bill Murphy, whose firm is also investigating.

Jealous, a Democrat and former NAACP head, said Durkin and Evans "are ultimately responsible for ensuring the safety of our student-athletes". The report from ESPN shared the scary details surrounding McNair's death, which called into question the Maryland training staff.
