The Fridge Is Coming Back – Long Live The Fridge

Yesterday, Maryland announced that coach Ralph Friedgen, whose job was on the line entering this season after a 2-10 finish in 2009, will return to coach the program in 2011.

“Based largely on the improved performance of our team and student-athletes this season, Coach Friedgen will be our head football coach next year,” athletic director Kevin Anderson said in a prepared statement. “Once this season is complete, Ralph and I will sit down to discuss the current state and future of the program. Right now, the team’s focus will be on winning the 2010 ACC championship and a bowl game, which our coaching staff and student-athletes have put themselves in position to do. We hope our fans, students and alums will come out and support us in the effort.”

Maryland was 2-7 at this point last year and is now 7-3 heading into Saturday's home game against FSU. Not only did the Fridge have the Terps bowl-eligible before November, but they are also in position to win the Atlantic Division and play for the ACC title. The Terps needs to win their final two games against FSU and N.C. State (no small feat granted) to win the division.

“I’m excited about the direction of our program,” Friedgen said in the release. “We have a great of bunch of kids and a tremendous staff. I’m thankful for all the hard work they have put into this season. Right now we’re just concentrating on Florida State.”
