Through a spokesman, Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson declined comment Tuesday about a report that he is being considered for the same position at the University of Texas. The Dallas Morning News reported Monday night that West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck is "the unquestioned leading candidate" to replace DeLoss Dodds at Texas. But the story also cites two industry sources who say Arizona State athletic director Steve Patterson and Anderson are expected to be interviewed.

Two days after denying a report in the San Francisco Chronicle that said he was set to become Stanford's athletic director , Maryland AD Kevin Anderson spoke to The Baltimore Sun about a hectic Monday in which he spent a lot of time dealing with repercussions of an "irresponsible" story. Anderson, who was Stanford's director of annual giving for athletics from 1993-95, reiterated Wednesday that the report in the Chronicle was erroneous and that he hasn't "talked to anybody at Stanford, period.

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has seen more than a dozen of his players leave school early to pursue professional careers. The departures have often left Cirovski to wonder whether his former athletes would eventually come back to finish their undergraduate degrees. With a new program announced Tuesday by Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson, athletes in all of the school's sports will be able to return with their scholarships intact as long as they left the university in good academic and social standing.

Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said he spent much of Monday putting out “a lot of fires” after a San Francisco newspaper reported - erroneously, Anderson said - that he was on the verge of being hired as Stanford's AD. “I spent the majority of this afternoon calling - talking to my president and to supporters of the athletic department and staff members. I had to put out a lot of fires,” Anderson told the Baltimore Sun . Anderson said all of his phone calls were the product of “somebody putting some inaccurate information on the Internet.” The San Francisco Chronicle reported Stanford was to name Anderson as athletic director “assuming the two sides can agree on contract terms.” In a written statement, Anderson said: “I am not in discussions nor have I been with Stanford University regarding their open athletic director position as I am committed to being the director of athletics at the University of Maryland.” The Chronicle's report was widely disseminated via Twitter and other sources.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The pained look Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson has worn for most of the past two months has had more to do with his recovery from knee replacement surgery than what he endured watching the Terps men's basketball team's disappointing season. The solemn look was there Thursday, but this time it had more to do with the Terps' losing another close game than with his new knee. Anderson, who signed Mark Turgeon to an eight-year contract after Gary Williams retired suddenly in March 2011, said he still has faith that the Terps will turn it around.

As a reporter, you are taught to keep your opinions out of the stories you write. But the blogosphere has allowed certain freedoms that didn't exist before. As someone who has covered and followed University of Maryland athletics since coming to The Baltimore Sun more than 25 years ago, I have the unique perspective of not only comparing coaches but athletic directors as well. I think it's too soon to judge Kevin Anderson's tenure in College Park, but in talking with Anderson for a story that appeared on the Sun's website Wednesday night and in the newspaper on Thursday, my feelings for the job he has done over the past 18 months have certainly changed.

Kevin Anderson has taken his share of criticism since coming from Army to Maryland 27 months ago. The athletic director got off to a rocky start with Maryland fans - and many in the local media - for the clumsy way he handled the firing of Ralph Friedgen in December 2010 and the subsequent hiring a few days later of Randy Edsall as the school's football coach. And that was before the Terps were a disastrous 2-10 in Edsall's first season. Then there was the cutting of seven sports to help trim a multi-million dollar deficit Anderson inherited from his predecessor, Debbie Yow. Given the timing of the announcement - in the middle of that nightmarish 2011 football season - Anderson became something of an easy target.

WASHINGTON -- The Big Ten men's basketball tournament trophy was displayed to the right of where Kevin Anderson was sitting on an occasion that ordinarily would have offered Maryland's athletic director a chance to imagine the Terps seriously competing for that sparkly prize. Anderson can only hope that his next visit to Verizon Center - site of Tuesday's news conference to announce that the 2017 Big Ten tournament will be held at the venue - occurs during a brighter period for the team and its coach.

Kevin Anderson's Maryland athletic director contract is for five years at $401,015 annually, but it contains a provision that could potentially keep him at the university much longer, according to a copy of the document obtained Tuesday. The contract says the five-year term shall be automatically extended each Sept. 30 by one year unless either party -- Anderson or Maryland -- "informs the other in writing that ... it does not want to extend this contract for an additional year. " In addition to the base salary, the contract offers up to $50,000 collectively in incentives for athletes' graduation rates and academic achievements, athletic fundraising, and team success.

Like many Maryland graduates, Stan Gelbaugh wasn't thrilled when the school announced nearly 20 months ago that it was going to be moving from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten. The former Terps quarterback, who was a part of three straight ACC championship football teams from 1983 through 1985, also knew he had little choice but to accept the decision. Even Monday, as he joined a couple of hundred alums, administrators and fans at the Under Armour Brand House in Harbor East to celebrate Maryland officially joining the Big Ten on Tuesday, Gelbaugh seemed to be more resigned to the change than rejoicing about it. "I think it's going to happen," Gelbaugh said hesitantly, when asked for his feelings about the move.

The Big Ten has planned events in Baltimore and Washington to celebrate Maryland joining the league on July 1. A two-day event will begin at the Under Armour Brand House at noon on June 30, continue later that day at Nationals Park and conclude on July 1 in College Park. The Big Ten Network will host a 4 p.m. block party prior to the Washington Nationals-Colorado Rockies game on June 30 and will dedicate its entire July 1 programming to Maryland joining the conference. “The University of Maryland and Maryland athletics are excited to celebrate its new era in the Big Ten Conference,” Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said Wednesday in a statement.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - After beating Duke and narrowly losing to North Carolina in last year's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Maryland looked at the National Invitation Tournament as a building block for Mark Turgeon's program. If the Terps are selected Sunday night for their second straight NIT after losing Thursday to Florida State in the second round of Maryland's last ACC tournament, it might be viewed differently. Many will see playing in the NIT - and the team's disappointing 17-15 season in general - as a stumbling block in what many hoped to be a breakthrough season in Turgeon's third year in College Park.

It's too soon to tell whether the Maryland football program took a big leap forward with the hiring of former Connecticut coach Randy Edsall — which became official Monday — but athletic director Kevin Anderson definitely displayed a quick first step. The Terps had to get their new coach in place in a hurry to protect this year's committed football recruits, and Anderson kept his promise to hire somebody in time for the opening of a new recruiting window. There are going to be some hurt feelings for a while — both in the Ralph Friedgen household and among his supporters — but they'll eventually give way to a fresh outlook for the program, which Friedgen left in good shape.

Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach said Monday that he wants to return to the sideline and that "I would talk to Maryland" about the vacancy being created by the buyout of Terps coach Ralph Friedgen, but the school has not contacted him yet. Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson told The Baltimore Sun that, while Leach is on his list of candidates and he is researching his credentials, there is no front-runner. Anderson is interested enough in Leach - he called him "cerebral" - that he has begun to gather such information as the graduation rates of Leach's former players.

WASHINGTON - When the Virginia Tech game had been won, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall bolted from the sideline and bounded across the field, his arms upraised, his fists pumping, an ear-to-ear grin on his face. As the Terps prepared for Friday's Military Bowl game against Marshall in Annapolis, Edsall said he regards the 27-24, overtime win over the Hokies on Nov. 16 as a watershed moment not only of the season, but perhaps for his program. If not for that victory, the Terps (7-5)
