ESPN reported McNair passed away due to heatstroke he suffered during the workout.

It was only a matter of time before other coaches were asked about the bombshell reports that described a toxic culture at Maryland but the award for one of the more tone-deaf statements in the wake of serious allegations stemming from a player's depth appears to come from SC head coach Will Muschamp on Saturday. Heatstroke was eventually determined to be the cause of his death. McNair's parents hired a Baltimore law firm to also investigate.

June 19, 2018: Maryland announces the hire of Rod Walters, a sports medicine consultant who oversaw athletic training at Appalachian State and SC, to conduct a review into the death of McNair.

Jealous, a Democrat and former NAACP head, said Durkin and Evans "are ultimately responsible for ensuring the safety of our student-athletes". Evans, who had been at Maryland since 2014, had been serving as acting athletic director since April. The ESPN report also cast doubt on the legitimacy if that investigation, reporting that interviews with players didn't begin until this month and were held in near-proximity to coaches' offices.

Muschamp also addressed allegations from anonymous players, questioning their veracity and the players' motives. According to sources at a staff meeting, Evans informed the team that head football athletic trainer Wes Robinson and director of athletic training Steve Nordwall were placed on leave.

Following ESPN's report, Maryland placed several staffers on leave. Evans said in a statement, "I am extremely concerned by the allegations of unacceptable behaviors by members of our football staff detailed in recent media reports".

Durkin, who served under Muschamp from 2011-2014 at Florida, is now the head coach of the Terrapins.

Earlier Saturday, a person who had been briefed on the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that Court had been placed on leave by the school. He reiterated his support for the full investigation of the program.
