Ralph Friedgen: ‘I’ve burned my diploma. I’m flying a Georgia Tech flag right now’


”I’ve burned my diploma. I’m flying a Georgia Tech flag right now,” Ralph Friedgen told a Baltimore radio station. (John McDonnell - THE WASHINGTON POST)
I encourage you to listen to and weigh in on a radio interview former Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen conducted Thursday with Glenn Clark on Baltimore radio station WNST (1570 AM). You can listen to the entire 12-minute interview right here. Friedgen talks a lot about his feelings about Torrey Smith and LaQuan Williams. But here is this portion of the interview that also may interest you:

Clark: Is it tough for you to watch? Have you sat down and watched any Maryland games or is it tough for you to do that? I know you love the kids, but I also know you’re a Maryland alum, and it’s got to be a little painful.

Friedgen: Well, it’s not painful because I watch it for the kids. I could care less about Maryland. I’ve burned my diploma. I’m flying a Georgia Tech flag right now.

Clark: [laughing] That’s hurtful. I don’t want to hear that, Coach. I’m a Maryland alum.

Friedgen: Well, they talk about Maryland pride. They didn’t show me a whole lot of Maryland pride, either getting the job or getting fired.
