Maryland names Gattis offensive coordinato­r

- — Emily Giambalvo

Maryland football finalized its coaching staff for the 2023 season with the additions of offensive coordinato­r Josh Gattis and safeties coach Zac Spavital, the program announced Thursday.

Gattis, who also will coach quarterbac­ks at Maryland, was the offensive coordinato­r at Miami in 2022, but the school fired him after one season. The Hurricanes logged 23.6 points and 367.1 yards per game. Gattis has experience in the Big Ten, working as Michigan’s offensive coordinato­r from 2019 to 2021. Gattis won the 2021 Broyles Award, given to the nation’s top assistant.

Gattis will be part of a newlook offensive staff after Coach Mike Locksley lost his top two offensive assistants following last season. Locksley recently hired longtime college head coach Kevin Sumlin as the cocoordina­tor and tight ends coach.
