Geiger to start evaluation Monday COLLEGE FOOTBALL


Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger will meet with football coach Joe Krivak on Monday to begin evaluating the team's season and program.

Maryland, which will finish its season Saturday against Nort Carolina State, is 2-8, a record Geiger has called disappointing after the Terps finished 6-5-1 and played in the Poulan-Weed Eater Independence Bowl a year ago. Krivak, 56, in the first year of a renewed four-year contract worth $64,000 a year, has compiled a 20-32-2 record at Maryland with only one winning season.

Geiger said Sunday that he was 95 percent sure Krivak will be retained for next season but that he needed to make sure the program is headed in the right direction.

Geiger will begin interviewing senior players and assistant coaches next week and will evaluate all phases of the program, including recruiting and conditioning. He said he had no timetable for completing the evaluation and that he would not be swayed by alumni and fans who are asking for Krivak to be fired or to resign.
