Maryland adds four assistants

Maryland coach Randy Edsall has hired four former Big East assistants. Greg Gattuso, Lyndon Johnson, David Walker and Andrew Wilson have joined Maryland's staff. Gattuso will coach the defensive line, Johnson the special teams unit/outside linebackers, Walker running backs and Wilson the strength and conditioning coach.

The former head coach of Duquesne (1992-04), Gattuso spent the last six seasons at the University of Pittsburgh. The Panthers were one of the top sack producers in the nation the last two years. Walker also spent the last six seasons at Pitt, where he coached some of the top running backs in the nation. Johnson was on Edsall’s staff at Connecticut, where he coached tight ends and special teams his first three seasons (1999-01) before handling the outside linebackers his final nine years. He also coached special teams from 2005 through 2010.

Wilson also worked under Edsall the past five seasons, designing and implementing a strength and conditioning program for the Huskies.
