Anderson says recruits will wait for new coach

After Maryland fans said goodbye to Gary Williams and cheered the coach off into the sunset, Athletic Director Kevin Anderson said he had spoken to the Terrapins’ incoming recruits and that they would wait to see who is hired as the team’s next coach.

What that means, however, is unclear.

The travel-team coach for New Jersey point guard Sterling Gibbs said Thursday that Gibbs will ask for and expect a release from his scholarship so that he can pursue other options while waiting to see who the Terps hire. Gibbs said that Baltimore forward Nick Faust also will ask for a release.

Maryland can hold off on granting a release until it hires a coach and give that coach a chance to talk to any wavering recruits, but the players clearly want to have their release and then also be able to consider Maryland.

One thing this could speak to is whether Anderson plans to move quickly to hire a replacement.
