Maryland and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley have agreed to a new three-year deal worth more than $600,000 per year, Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com is reporting.

Locksley, who is integral to Maryland's recruiting efforts in the region, is in charge of an offense that will return a host of key contributors at skill positions, including wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, as well quarterback C.J. Brown and running back Wes Brown.

Maryland made a major splash on the recruiting trail in the Class of 2014, signing five-star offensive lineman Damian Prince. Locksley's connections in the area proved key in his recruitment.

According to Feldman, Locksley now becomes one of the Big Ten's highest-paid coordinators.
