COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Mike Locksley is thrilled to be home.
The Washington native who spent two stints as a Maryland football assistant and also served as the Terrapins' interim leader for six games in 2015 was introduced Thursday as the school's full-time coach.
"This was the job I've coveted since the day I put a whistle around my neck as a coach," said Locksley, the Alabama offensive coordinator who Tuesday was named the winner of the Broyles Award as the nation's top assistant coach. "Some people grow up wanting to be the head coach at the University of Alabama, Michigan, all the storied programs. For Locks, this was it."
