Former Maryland defensive coordinator Todd Bradford to receive $300,000 buyout

Former Maryland defensive coordinator Todd Bradford agreed to a $300,000 buyout when he resigned from his position Jan. 12.  

Per the terms of his separation agreement, a copy of which was obtained via a public records request, Bradford temporarily assumed a non-football administrative position in the athletic department until Jan. 31, his final day of employment at Maryland.

Bradford stepped down after one season in College Park, during which the Terrapins went 2-10 and Maryland’s defense was among the most porous in the ACC. He was due to receive $700,000 over the final two years of his contract.

According to Bradford’s buyout agreement, Maryland paid him $50,000 on Feb. 3 and will make a payment of $250,000 on July 20. Bradford additionally received any compensation he was due to receive per the terms of his original contract through Jan. 31. 

Maryland hired Brian Stewart to replace Bradford on Jan. 17.
