Syracuse aide may join Terps

January 11, 1995|By Mike Preston

Syracuse wide receivers coach Dennis Goldman has been offered a similar position with Maryland for the 1995 season, the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse Herald-Journal newspapers reported yesterday.

Maryland has an opening for an assistant after Vincent White took a job this week at Southern Methodist, but officials from both schools could not confirm the report about Goldman. The coaches involved, Mark Duffner of Maryland and Paul Pasqualoni of Syracuse, are attending the American Football Coaches Association convention in Dallas and were not available for comment.

"I need to reach the guy I work for [Pasqualoni] and talk with him," Goldman was quoted as saying.

Joe Blair, a spokesman for Maryland, said he has no knowledge of Goldman's hiring, but said he expected Duffner to fill the opening by at least the end of this month.

Goldman, 45, has spent four seasons at Syracuse, turning out such receivers as Qadry Ismail of the Minnesota Vikings and Shelby Hill, who signed with Dallas this season.

Goldman worked as a receivers and tight ends coach under Duffner at Holy Cross for five years.
