COLLEGE PARK -- Brian Stewart, a former assistant with four NFL teams who oversaw the Dallas Cowboys' defense under Wade Phillips, has been named Maryland's new defensive coordinator. Stewart, who spent the past two seasons as the University of Houston's defensive coordinator, will be introduced to the media during a teleconference Tuesday morning. “I'm excited to join [Maryland coach] Randy [Edsall]'s staff,” Stewart said in a news release. “I admired what he did at UConn and saw the beginning of that transformation while I was at Syracuse.

COLLEGE PARK -- By the end of last weekend's game against West Virginia, Maryland was depleted enough that the Terrapins were primarily using backups at inside linebacker and a scout team player at outside linebacker. The Terps might get outside linebackers Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and Matt Robinson back for Saturday's game against Syracuse. Inside linebacker L.A. Goree might play as well. But all four of Maryland's starting linebackers have dealt with injuries during the early part of the season, and it is possible the Terps will again have to rely heavily on backup players when Maryland plays a Syracuse team that ran for 289 yards in a 40-3 win over Central Michigan last week.

I have been critical of many things Maryland football coach Randy Edsallhas said and done over the course of his first season in College Park, but the moves he made in replacing his team's offensive and defensive coordinators are to be applauded -- on a number of fronts. First, new offensive coordinator Mike Lockley is a huge upgrade over any assistant Edsall has brought on when it comes to recruiting. Locksley, too, consistently raised the performance of his offense in the four years he held the coordinator's position at Illinois under Ron Zook.

When Brian Stewart accused a local fraternity chapter at Morgan State University of discriminating against him for being gay late last year, the university stressed its commitment to diversity and began investigating. The two results, Stewart said this week, were that the Alpha Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was placed on probation for breaking university discrimination policies, and Stewart became an even bigger target of harassment  on the school's Baltimore campus. "I had figures - hidden by the shadows of a campus residence hall and the night sky -- yell threats to me intentionally calling me a [gay slur]

So what did we learn about new Maryland defensive coordinator Brian Stewart, who met the media on Wednesday? *That he is a student of the 3-4 defense. There are different versions of the 3-4, of course, and Stewart uses one with traditional fronts akin to those of Bum and Wade Phillips. Remember that Stewart has an extensive NFL background. He oversaw the Dallas Cowboys' defense when Wade Phillips was head coach. *He said a key to his defenses is the outside linebacker -- such as former Terp Shawne Merriman in the NFL. "The outside linebackers are where the bread is buttered," Stewart said.  *He said he'll learn a lot about how his team adapts to the 3-4 during spring practices beginning March 10. "The first few practices are pivotal to see ... how fast they learn" and who buys in, Stewart said.

The hiring of Brian Stewart as Maryland's defensive coordinator is a move that is being celebrated on a number of fronts. It signifies a return to the attacking style and the 3-4 formation the Terps played under Don Brown, whose sudden departure last spring left new coach Randy Edsall scrambling for a replacement. Edsall wound up promoting linebackers coach Todd Bradford, whose 4-3 scheme turned All-ACC safety Kenny Tate into a linebacker and contributed to Maryland's finishing 108th in the country in overall defense after being ranked 39th under Brown in 2010.

Maryland defensive coordinator Brian Stewart has agreed to terms of a contract extension, according to a source with direct knowledge of the pact. His original deal was set to expire Jan. 31. Terms were not disclosed. Maryland also will learn as soon as this week whether it will lose wide receivers coach Lee Hull, who is a finalist for Morgan State's head coaching job. On Tuesday, Morgan State completed interviewing its finalists, but no offer has yet been made. Stewart's previous deal paid $262,500 in base salary, plus an additional $87,500 for media appearances, fundraising activities, personal appearances, and equipment and apparel endorsements.

Maryland opens football spring practices this Saturday. Coaches say the defense will emphasize improving red-zone defense and tackling techniques. On offense, coaches say the team will concentrate on minimizing turnovers. “A lot of people use springs for a lot of different reasons - fine-tune the offense, fine-tune the defense ... do goal-line, do red-zone defense,” defensive coordinator Brian Stewart said Wednesday. “Nevada-Reno, they put in a pistol in the spring.

A fraternity chapter at Morgan State accused of discriminating against a student because he is gay has been placed on probation until fall 2015, university officials said Tuesday. In late October, senior Brian Stewart filed a formal complaint with the university alleging that the chapter rejected him because he is gay, offering derogatory social media messages he said were sent between fraternity members as proof. Morgan spokesman Jarrett Carter Sr. said a disciplinary panel investigating the complaint found that the Alpha Iota chapter violated university policies on discrimination.

Morgan State University has opened an investigation into a student's allegation that members of a fraternity he wanted to join rejected him because he is gay. Brian Stewart said he dreamed of joining Morgan's chapter of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity and thought members would be impressed by his academic accomplishments - Stewart said he was a White House intern - but he was rejected the day after his interview. He believes it is because of his sexual orientation, citing social-media messages using an anti-gay slur that someone sent him and told him were between fraternity members.

COLLEGE PARK - Cole Farrand knows how Maryland's defense is supposed to look. He has an image in his mind as a perpetual reminder. The junior said he can still visualize fellow linebacker L.A. Goree "ripping the ball" from the grasp of a West Virginia ball carrier, one of six takeaways forced by the Terps in their 37-0 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. That was five weeks ago, but it feels like the distant past for the Terps (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have lost two out of three heading into Saturday's homecoming game against Clemson (6-1, 4-1 ACC)

When a school hires a top assistant coach, they don't just hire an individual. They also hire a system -- a 3-4 in Maryland defensive coordinator Brian Stewart's case -- and a network of contacts. Former Houston defensive end Zeke Riser played for Stewart with the Cougars, and apparently liked him well enough to want to reunite with him in College Park. It's worth noting that the paperwork on the 6-4, 255-pound lineman from LaVernia, Texas, has not been completed, so his move to Maryland has not been finalized.

Florida State's media notes project a key battle Saturday between Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and Seminoles senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. That should be fun to watch. But I'm looking forward to seeing how Maryland's pressure - the Terps have been sack happy through four games - fares against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. I wrote a story for tomorrow's paper on Winston , who I spoke with briefly today. The striking thing about Winston is how calm and focused he has been to begin his career.

Wake Forest can hardly be considered to possess a dynamic offense this season. The Demon Deacons - Maryland's opponent Saturday - rank last in the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring (20 points per game) and last in total offense (327 yards per game). The Demon Deacons (3-3, 1-2 ACC) haven't run the ball well and are a bit one-dimensional. But what they do - throw the ball to Michael Campanaro - they do very well. Campanaro (River Hill) didn't play against the Terps (5-1, 1-1 ACC)
