COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow affirmed her support for men's basketball coach Gary Williams on Monday, expressing optimism for this season and stressing that his job is secure. The Terrapins are 14-7 this season and 3-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but Williams has been criticized for letting the program sink since Maryland won the NCAA championship in 2002. The coach, in his 20th season with the Terrapins, has been forced over the past couple of weeks to defend his recruiting and determination to win. Yow has not commented on the situation in the aftermath of the death of her sister, North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow, who died last month of cancer.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen will return for the 2010 season, The Associated Press has learned. Friedgen's job status appeared shaky after the Terrapins lost a school-record 10 games this season. But after meeting for two consecutive days with athletic director Debbie Yow, he has been given the go-ahead to make plans for a 10th season as head coach at his alma mater, according to a school official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet formally been made.

HAGERSTOWN University of Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen admits that there are many aspects of success that keep him motivated. Maybe the biggest of them is making sure his players are ready to tackle the real world long after they have finished tackling opposing running backs. "I believe in the student-athlete," Friedgen said Wednesday at the Rotary Club of Hagerstown's weekly meeting at the Four Points Sheraton. "I believe in winning. I believe in graduating players.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Under different circumstances, Maryland might have been bitterly disappointed to end its season with a lopsided defeat. The Terrapins displayed no shame Saturday when they walked off court following an 89-70 loss to Memphis in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The setback did nothing to detract from what they had accomplished to that point, and each player knew the situation could have been much worse. After all, their final game didn't take place in the NIT. Maryland seemed destined to miss the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years before mounting a late surge that netted a No. 10 seed in the West Regional.

The air around College Park is thick with speculation that Debbie Yow, the University of Maryland's athletic director, will fire Mark Duffner if the football team does not finish with more wins than losses. Considering that the Terrapins are 5-5 and play Florida State in their finale, it might be time for Duffner to find a good Realtor. My observation of Duffner is that he's a great guy who cares passionately about his players, plays by the rules and burns to win. The type who deserves a lot more rope than many, if not most, of his peers.

keller@herald-mail.com Don't expect University of Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow to follow the status quo when it comes to Title IX. Yow, who was on hand at the Cumberland Valley Terrapin Club Spring Outing at Fountain Head Country Club on Wednesday, said Maryland will go the complete opposite direction many other universities are taking in complying with the federal legislation. She said that rather than eliminating men's programs, as West Virginia and Toledo have done in recent weeks, Maryland will add women's programs before it drops any sport.

keller@herald-mail.com I've always followed the University of Maryland for two reasons: I've lived in Maryland my entire life and I'd have to answer to my mother if I didn't follow the Terps. My mother is a certified Terrapin fanatic, at least as far as the men's basketball team is concerned. She watches football, too, but not with the same passion she has for hoops. It's well known in our family that you don't bother mom while the Terps are on TV. Catch her before or after, maybe try to squeeze in a conversation during halftime ... but while the game is going, forget it. Her heart is in College Park.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - With one pull of a handle in Jacksonville, Fla., Maryland's bowl hopes started to spin like the dials of a slot machine. Peach, Tangerine, sour grapes. It was tough for the Terps to feel like winners after the Gator Bowl jumped the invitation gun, went against protocol and elected to take North Carolina State as the Atlantic Coast Conference's representative to the New Year's Day game. Peach, Tangerine, sour grapes. The mix doesn't even resemble a good fruit salad.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- During a season in which Gary Williams was often criticized for his poor recruiting, a determined squad of undersized players banded together to support their maligned coach. Their joint efforts got Maryland in the NCAA tournament. "What we went through the whole year and making it to the tournament shows how tough we are as a team and how good he is as a coach," junior guard Greivis Vasquez said. "We never gave up. " Mostly because Williams never stopped pushing the players.
