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.

"I said, 'Ricky, I know you're into basketball, but I'd love for you to play football,'" Otto recalled. "Obviously, he was worried about injury, so I said, 'You know what, I'll put you at wide receiver. All you've got to do is catch passes.' At the time, he was probably 6-foot-4, 220 pounds.

Broadneck football coach Rob Harris took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge twice. He's not on Facebook and didn't have proof of the first dousing, so he had ice water poured over his head a second time. That didn't bother him. Harris would take a few more ice water showers if it would raise additional money for research into the neurodegenerative disease at the heart of the challenge, a social media fundraising wave that has swept the country this month. Harris has a personal connection to ALS. His wife Sarah's uncle, Johnny O'Brien, a former Severna Park football player, was 56 when he died in January of the condition widely known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Ric Evans has no illusions about his new job. In taking over Hereford's football team, Evans inherits one of the most successful programs in Baltimore County - if not the state - from one of the best coaches to walk the sideline, Steve Turnbaugh, a two-time All-Metro Coach of the Year who guided the Bulls to three state titles and 11 state tournament appearances in 19 seasons. "I'm certainly not going to try and fill the shoes of the guy before me. He is a legend," said Evans, who spent the last eight seasons as a Hereford assistant coach and takes the reins Wednesday, the first day of practice for public school teams.

Succeeding Bob Ford as only the second head coach of the Albany football program might seem like a daunting task. But Greg Gattuso has some experience to lean on. Gattuso, Maryland's defensive line coach for the past three years, previously worked for 12 seasons as the head coach at  Duquesne. Gattuso said his biggest challenge is building a connection between the players and coaches, six of whom are new to the Great Danes. “I have no idea how our guys are going to respond to our coaches and how we do things,” Gattuso said during the recent Colonial Athletic Association media day. “I think they're excited about change, but there is a little unknown there.

CHICAGO -- Maryland football coach Randy Edsall is aware of the attention he has gotten for his remark that the ACC is a "basketball conference. " He has also read the comments from Towson coach Rob Ambrose  -- a former assistant of his at Connecticut -- stating that recruits “no longer want to go to Maryland. They want to go to Towson.” But Edsall isn't overly concerned with either situation as Maryland gets ready to begin preseason practice Aug. 4. “All I want to do is do the best I can for our guys,” Edsall said Monday at Big Ten media days . “I just worry about what I think is best for us. I don't worry about what other people think, what other people say to me. I don't worry about that.
