Maryland’s offensive line was a mixed bag last year. On one hand, the group paved the way for over 2,500 rushing yards, ranking top-15 in the nation in run-blocking efficiency. The other hand is a doozy, though. The team finished 124th out of 128 FBS teams in adjusted sack rate.
Enter new offensive line coach Tyler Bowen, who led one of the top offenses in the FCS as Fordham’s offensive coordinator last season. Former coach Dave Borbely moves to an off-the-field role, and Bowen will inherit a wealth of depth at the position.
