Should Maryland head coach D.J. Durkin resign?

The death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair in June has left a cloud over Maryland football. Rick Court, the assistant athletics director for sports performance who led the workout McNair died in, has already resigned—but some are calling for head coach D.J. Durkin to go too. There are also allegations of rampant bullying and abuse, and if Durkin oversaw the team and did nothing about it, he should be fired. Others think if the coach had no idea, he should stay. What do you think? 🏈

Durkin signed up to be in charge of the Maryland football program. If this happened under his watch, he has no business running a team. Head coaches are supposed to care for their players. If a student-athlete dies, especially under alleged abusive circumstances, Durkin should be held responsible. Fire Durkin now!

The media is always looking for a sensational story. Sometimes the truth is less interesting. According to other players on the team, they have seen no evidence of the harsh conditions that are being reported. 

Jordan McNair's death might have been a freak accident. Durkin shouldn't be fired for that.
