And what about the coaches and trainers on Mr. Durkin’s staff? Had they ever raised red flags? Surely, even if Coach Durkin were blameless in the death of Jordan McNair, which the university also has been investigating, the additional reporting so far has raised some serious doubts about judgment and “old school” mentality toward the health and well-being of student athletes. And it’s not the first time UMD has faced such doubts, either. Granted, it’s been 32 years since the death of Len Bias, and so even hardcore Maryland fans below the age of 40 can be forgiven for not remembering the scandal that emerged after the College Park basketball star died of cardiac arrhythmia after taking cocaine. Here’s the short version: It was revealed that the Maryland athletic department didn’t give a hoot about the academic performance of its athletes and lots of folks, including head men’s basketball coach Lefty Driesell, left in disgrace. Since then, the school has claimed to care about graduation rates and students attending class and remaining in good academic standing. Shouldn’t they have emphasized keeping them healthy, too?
