Friedgen still bitter over Terps departure

Apparently, former Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen is still bitter at his alma mater for firing him after the 2010 season.

CBS Sportsline's Bruce Feldman conducted an interview with Friedgen on a variety of topics, including the Terps asking him to step down as their head coach.

Friedgen made it clear that his success at Maryland wasn't appreciated and that, in retrospect, he probably should have left for Georgia Tech or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they contacted him about potential openings early on in his tenure with the Terps.

Fridge said he still watches every Maryland game, but his feelings are so conflicted toward his alma mater that he neither roots for or against the Terps.

It's sad to see an alum who spent so much time as the head coach at Maryland still unable to get over hard feelings over three years later that resulted from his firing.

While it must be great to take over as the coach at your alma mater, it shows just how difficult the situation can become for all parties if a change has to be made.

Fortunately for Maryland and Gary Williams, the head coach realized he wanted to leave on his own terms and retired before the school had to come to him and possibly force him out.
