Loyola football coach Brian Abbott has stepped down after 10 years, four Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference titles and six Turkey Bowl victories. "I just think your internal clock tells you it's time," Abbott said. "My goal was never to be a coach that was a head coach for 30 years. There's a lot of opportunities out there and staying here at Loyola. I'm going to go back to grad school in the fall and just find new opportunities and be excited about the things that I can do. " Abbott, 45, will remain at the school, where he will continue to run the school's summer programs and the Blakefield Experience program as well as coach middle school lacrosse.

Johnny Brooks Aberdeen A year ago, Brooks coached Havre de Grace to the state Class 1A final. Then, looking for a change, he packed up his coaching staff and moved down U.S. 40 to take over a floundering Aberdeen program coming off a 1-9 season. "We knew what we were walking into," he said. "We didn't know the talent, but we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us. We got on them in the summertime about getting better and not having to be 1-9. … That kind of fueled some of them, and the senior captains really bought into it. They were out there in triple digits [temperatures]

Bobby Ross got much of the credit for Maryland's short reign as the most dominant team in the Atlantic Coast Conference in the mid 1980s, but Joe Krivak was often referred to as the guru and play-caller for a string of record-setting Terps quarterbacks. Krivak, who died Tuesday after battling leukemia, tutored a line of Maryland quarterbacks that began with Boomer Esiason and Frank Reich, included Stan Gelbaugh and Dan Henning, and ended with Neil O'Donnell and Scott Zolak after Krivak succeeded Ross as head coach in 1987.

As a kid, Terry McAulay watched football games on TV and practiced the moves he saw - not the spins and jukes of the players, but the gestures and actions of the officials. Hands on hips? Offside. Arms folded? Delay of game. At age 9, McAulay knew them all. "Terry would sit there for hours, mimicking every signal that the referees used," said Dene McAulay, his mother. "We marveled at [the pantomime]. He never said a word, he just did it. " Some day, he told his family, he would referee the Super Bowl . Sunday, McAulay will do that for the third time when the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet in Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, N.J. It's the highest honor for an NFL official and a tribute that doesn't surprise high school coaches in the Baltimore area who dealt with McAulay, of Howard County, in his early years as an arbiter.

When he was a Maryland quarterback, Chris Turner told a story of his phone once ringing at 4:34 in the morning. It was passionate, intense James Franklin - an amped-up electron of a football coach for whom sleep is apparently an overvalued commodity - calling to see if the player was awake and ready for a spring practice. "I don't think he sleeps, to tell you the truth," former Maryland receivers coach Lee Hull said Thursday of Franklin, the former Terps offensive coordinator who left for Vanderbilt in 2010 and, according to multiple reports, is now close to becoming Penn State's head coach.

FRISCO, Texas -- In an effort to spur his players in the preseason, Towson football coach Rob Ambrose agreed to get one ear pierced and get fitted for an earring if the team reached the FCS title game. Reminded of that deal, the 43-year-old coach went jewelry shopping with his wife Friday evening. “I'm not having a midlife crisis,” Ambrose said. “But this afternoon, I'm going to get my ear pierced because I promised my kids that I would do that.” Although West said that the players had voted on a hoop earring that Michael Jordan had worn in the past, Ambrose said he wasn't sure which earring he was going to buy, which is why his wife Melissa accompanied him on the trip.
