Ex-LSU OL coach Studrawa takes same job with Terps

Just a couple of weeks after “parting ways” with LSU, Greg Studwara has found himself a new coaching home.

Maryland announced Saturday that Studwara has been hired as the Terps’ new offensive line coach.  Studrawa had been a part of Les Miles’ LSU staff as line coach for seven seasons, making him the longest-tenured assistant in the program before the two sides abruptly ceased and desisted their working relationship.

“Greg will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” said head coach Randy Edsall in a statement. “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.”

The coordinating experience Edsall spoke of came in 2011 and 2012 after Steve Kragthorpe was forced to step aside due to health issues, with Studrawa assuming the role of offensive coordinator with the Tigers.  He relinquished that role to Cam Cameron in 2013.

Prior to that, he had served as the line coach at first Arkansas State and then Bowling Green under Urban Meyer.

Studwara will replace Dave DeGuglielmo, who left this past week for an NFL job.  DeGuglielmo had been hired just six days prior to his departure.

    I’d love for an LSU fan in the know to post something here about what happened to get Studwara and the mad hatter crossways with each other. He’s always produced very good O-lines for the Bayou Bengals, and it was surprising when the team parted ways with him, without explanation.

    Here’s the scoop coolhorn from an LSU fan- coach ‘stud’ was somewhat a victim of circumstance. He was asked to become offensive coordinator for two seasons due to,Steve kragthorpes being diagnosed with Parkinson’s. that was a job studrawa was not cut out for. The offense floundered. Where stud really screwed up was Alabama took two of the best recruits in the state out of studrawa s recruiting region. With Miles it’s good to be able to coach but you better damn well be able to recruit. Plus this past season was a disappointment by lsu standards and at least one staff member had to go. Studs number came up. He’s a good o line coach, kind of a holler guy but the players loved him. Just leave him alone and let the man coach. Good luck to the Terps.

    Thanks Wolf…I’m obviously a UT fan, and we were looking for a new O-line coach several weeks ago. I thought he might be a good hire to consider, but let’s just say I’m ecstatic with the hire of Joe Wickline.

    Wolfman, it’s a good thing when there’s no hard feelins when a good coach leaves on good terms from Coach’s team and Stud did exactly that. I’m glad that he got a job with a team we don’t have to face,haha. On a side note thank goodness Coach Cam’s stayin. But back to Stud. He’s goin to do just fine and we’re goin to be still in the hunt. Coolhorn, thanks for not takin the stance of bashin Stud and our program. So many have and it really gets to me how some will talk about another’s team like they do. Good luck to your team upcomin season.
