Multiple sources report that former Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and Richmond coach Zohn Burden will join the coaching staff at Maryland.
Burden left the Hokies staff after the 2019 season and spent 2020 running his own camps and training as the G.A.M.E. Academy.
Reports have Burden taking the wide receivers position group at Maryland. Burden would take over the group that Joker Phillips led last season. Phillips took a job on the NC State staff late last month. The Terps wide receiver corps was also led by Chris Beatty just a few years ago. Beatty moved to Pitt for two seasons, then took a job in the NFL last month.
Current Maryland Head Coach Michael Locksley has held a two-year tenure. The Terrapins’ overall record in Locksley’s term is 5-12. The 2020 season was only five games after several COVID related cancelations. The Terrapins’ landmark game of the 2020 season was a 35-19 win over Penn State in Happy Valley.
Zohn Burden has historically recruited the 757 for each of the programs he has coached for, and his resume includes the successful recruitment and/or development of Deshawn McClease, Zach Pascal, Cam Phillips, Sam Rogers, Antonio Vaughan, Keshawn Artis, Armani Chatman, Lakeem Rudolph and Tayvion Robinson.
Burden played his high school ball at Salem in Virginia Beach and played collegiately for VMI.
