If you're keeping a running total, it's now up to eight players who have asked for and been granted their release from Maryland.
The latest is receiver Adrian Coxson, who has decided not to return to the football team in 2012, according to a school spokesman. Coxson, a redshirt freshman, will be granted his release and indicated he will transfer at the end of this semester.
“We appreciate everything that Adrian has done for us and hope everything works out for him in his future endeavors,” coach Randy Edsall said in a prepared statement.
Coxson, who transferred from Florida prior to the 2010 season, played in nine games this past season, all as a reserve wideout and on special teams. He had four receptions for 90 yards with one touchdown.
