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.

Here's a handicapping chart for the Maryland coaching search by reporter Don Markus, who is 1-1 in picking previous Terps head football coaching hires. Markus picked Sam Rutigliano over Joe Krivak in 1987, but had Friedgen over the field in 2000. Pre-race favorite: Mike Leach (5-1) Though various reports say that Leach's candidacy has cooled in recent days, this still appears to make the most sense. He's immediately available and was making at Texas Tech around what Maryland was paying Friedgen ($2 million per year)

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The Virginia football team had a bye two weeks ago, so quarterback coach Joe Krivak went recruiting. Hopping between high schools in Prince George's County, Krivak took a shortcut through College Park and stopped to admire the new upper decks at Byrd Stadium.Those additions are among the many changes made to Maryland football since Krivak was forced out as head coach at the end of the 1991 season, and he wondered how his regime would have fared with a renovated stadium, a softer nonconference schedule and looser admissions standards.

College Park -- Will it be the one-back offensive set or multiple two-back look? Can unproven Jim Sandwisch be an effective major-college quarterback? Can two highly recruited freshmen make an impact? Who will start at tailback, senior Troy Jackson or sophomore Mark Mason? And will it make a difference, with only one regular starter back on the offensive line?Questions, questions, questions.Never have there been so many about the University of Maryland's offense in the previous four seasons under head coach Joe Krivak.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- There appears to be more than one person with a decision to make on the question of whether Joe Krivak remains as Maryland's football coach.One of them, of course, is athletic director Andy Geiger.Another is Krivak himself. Does Krivak, after four years and at the age of 55, really want to return for more?Throughout the season, he periodically dropped hints that, even if the university wanted him back, he would have to give it serious thought and discuss it with his wife Jeannie after the season.

In Wednesday's editions, an article on graduation rates for athletes at the University of Maryland incorrectly referred to former football coach Mark Duffner.

By nearly a 2-to-1 margin, respondents to "It's Your Call" say the Terps should let Joe Krivak out of the final three years of his contract.Of 325 callers, 208 (64 percent) said Krivak should be replaced as football coach at Maryland. The other 36 percent (117 callers) said he should be retained."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
