COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WOOD) — Multiple reports say Jim Harbaugh will be looking for a new defensive coordinator.

ESPN and Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday that Michigan defense coordinator D.J. Durkin will become the next football coach at the University of Maryland.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh brought Durkin to Ann Arbor shortly after he was hired as coach. Durkin’s defense is currently ranked as the fourth best total defense in the NCAA.

Before becoming Michigan’s defensive coordinator, Durkin coached at Florida, Stanford and Bowling Green.

Maryland fired Randy Edsall on Oct. 11. Edsall was 22-33 during five seasons at the school.
