Following the departure of offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo after just one week at the helm in College Park, Maryland has hired former LSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa in the same capacity to replace him, the program announced in a release on Saturday afternoon.

“Greg will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” head coach Randy Edsall said in a release. “He comes from a diverse coaching background, with experience coordinating an offense as well as working with the offensive line. He has helped many players reach their goal of playing at the next level and his ability to teach will be very important in the development of our student-athletes.”

Studrawa has coached at LSU for the past seven seasons, including 2007, which saw the Tigers win the national title. He was primarily an offensive line coach in Baton Rouge, while also taking over offensive coordinator duties in 2011 and 2012. 

He has experience at the college ranks at other programs, including Northwestern, Bowling Green, and Cincinnati.

“After meeting with Coach Edsall it was clear to see the passion and energy surrounding this program," Studrawa said in a release. "I am looking forward to getting started and meeting with all of our student-athletes.”

Following the 2013 season, it was determined that Studrawa would not return to LSU. He replaces DeGuglielmo, who left to take a job with the NFL's New England Patriots seven days after being hired at Maryland.
