While there is much that is not official yet, a variety of reports suggest that Mike Leach will be announced as the new head football coach at the University of Maryland.

First, university officials told the Baltimore Sun that Maryland is forcing football coach Ralph Friedgen out.

Friedgen, in his tenth season as Terrapins coach, has been asked to retire. If he chooses not to retire, Maryland can reportedly buy out the final season of his contract, which pays him almost $2 million a year.

Next, Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com is reporting that Mike Leach is going to be the next head coach at Maryland.

New Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson has been evasive about a number of details recently, as Maryland coach-in-waiting James Franklin took the Vanderbilt job last week.

If Leach is hired as the Terrapins' head football coach, what will the impact be on Maryland football and the entire ACC gridiron scene?
