One day after the University of Maryland Board of Regents reinstated football coach D.J. Durkin (pictured), the school fired Durkin on Wednesday night.

Durkin was put on administrative leave by the school back in August, pending an investigation into the culture of Maryland football in light of the death of football player Jordan McNair earlier this year.

The Terrapins play Michigan State this Saturday afternoon in College Park at 12 noon.  Interim coach Matt Canada will coach the team for the rest of the season.  Maryland is 5-3 on the season, one win short of being bowl-eligible.
