The future of Maryland's football program is currently very much in the air. The Terrapins have placed head coach D.J. Durkin on administrative leave following the death of Jordan McNair and ESPN's bombshell report.

Maryland's president and athletic director held a press conference earlier this week, claiming full legal and moral responsibility for the death of McNair, as well as admitting that the allegations in ESPN's report need to be fully looked into.

College football insider Brett McMurphy is now reporting that Maryland's board of trustees will be holding a special, closed meeting on Friday.

"Maryland Board of Trustees calls special closed meeting Friday. Topics include “removal, resignation, employment, litigation, legal counsel or personnel matters” related to university’s impending lawsuit & possibly future of President Wallace Loh, AD Damon Evans & Coach DJ Durkin," he reports.

Ohio State, meanwhile, is expected to end its investigation into Urban Meyer and the handling of domestic violence accusations against Zach Smith by the end of this week.

Stay tuned.
