January 25, 2008|By DON MARKUS

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen added two assistants to his staff yesterday, hiring Danny Pearman to work with special teams and tight ends as well as Kasey Dunn to coach wide receivers.

Pearman replaces Ray Rychleski, who left to coach special teams at South Carolina. Pearman, 42, coached most recently at Duke and North Carolina after spending eight years at both Virginia Tech and Alabama.

"We're excited to have Danny on board," Friedgen said in a statement released by the school. "He's a good fit because of his experience in the ACC and his success with special teams and working with tight ends."

Dunn, who as a receiver at the University of Idaho finished second to the legendary Jerry Rice in Division I-AA history for career receptions and yardage, was the assistant head coach at Baylor last season and has worked at several other schools, including Arizona and Texas Christian.

"Coach Friedgen is one of the top offensive minds in the game and I'm looking forward to being a part of his staff," Dunn, 38, said.
