The Maryland football team announced on Saturday the hiring of former LSU assistant Greg Studrawa as it offensive line coach.
Studrawa, who coached the Tigers' offensive line from 2007 to 2013, replaces longtime offensive line coach Tom Brattan, whose contract was not renewed after last season. Brattan's initial replacement was Dave DeGuglielmo, formerly a New Jets assistant. But DeGuglielmo accepted a position last week as the New England Patriots' offensive line coach.
“Greg will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said in a release. “He comes from a diverse coaching background, with experience coordinating an offense as well as working with the offensive line. He has helped many players reach their goal of playing at the next level and his ability to teach will be very important in the development of our student-athletes.”
Studrawa was elevated to LSU offensive coordinator in August 2011. That season, they went 13-1, won the SEC title and reached the BCS national championship game. He also served as offensive coordinator in 2012. He left the Tigers in early January to pursue other opportunities, head coach Les Miles announced in a release.
“I am very excited to be a part of the Maryland football staff,” Studrawa said in Maryland's release “After meeting with Coach Edsall it was clear to see the passion and energy surrounding this program. I am looking forward to getting started and meeting with all of our student-athletes.”
Studrawa also served as offensive coordinator at Bowling Green from 2003 to 2006, and was also the assistant head coach for the Falcons during the 2006 season. Studrawa previously worked as the offensive line coach at Bowling Green in 2001 and 2002.
Studrawa spent three years as the offensive line coach at Arkansas State. Studrawa also served as an offensive line coach at Cincinnati in 1989 and 1990 and as offensive coordinator at Wilmington (Ohio) College from 1991 to 1996. He also had a one-year stint as a graduate assistant at Ohio State in 1997.
As a player, Studrawa was a two-year starter at left tackle for Bowling Green in 1986 and 1987. He is a native of Fostoria, Ohio.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
