COLLEGE PARK, Md. – University of Maryland head football coach Randy Edsall announced the hiring on Saturday of Greg Studrawa as offensive line coach.
Studrawa brings 25 years of coaching experience to Maryland after spending the previous seven seasons (2007-2013) at LSU. While in Baton Rouge, Studrawa helped LSU to a national title, a pair of SEC titles and to five 10-plus win seasons.
“Greg will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” said Edsall. “He comes from a diverse coaching background, with experience coordinating an offense as well as working with the offensive line. He has helped many players reach their goal of playing at the next level and his ability to teach will be very important in the development of our student-athletes.”
Studrawa coached the offensive line for all seven seasons at LSU, while adding offensive coordinator duties to his responsibilities in 2011 and 2012. He returned to primarily coaching the offensive line in 2013.
In his two years as LSU’s offensive coordinator, Studrawa helped the Tigers to a 23-4 overall mark, and during his seven years on the staff, LSU posted a 73-20 mark.
Studrawa was elevated to offensive coordinator in August of 2011 and LSU went 13-1, claimed the SEC title and reached the BCS National Championship Game in his first year directing the offense.
“I am very excited to be a part of the Maryland football staff,” said Studrawa. “After meeting with Coach Edsall it was clear to see the passion and energy surrounding this program. I am looking forward to getting started and meeting with all of our student-athletes.”
Prior to joining LSU, Studrawa held the position of offensive coordinator at Bowling Green from 2003-06, and was also the assistant head coach for the Falcons during the 2006 season. In his four years as the offensive coordinator, Bowling Green played in two bowl games – beating Northwestern, 28-24, in the 2003 Motor City Bowl and defeating Memphis, 52-35, in the 2004 GMAC Bowl - and posted a combined record of 30-19. Studrawa served as the offensive line coach at Bowling Green in 2001 and 2002 before being elevated to the offensive coordinator position in 2003.
Before his return to Bowling Green, he spent three years as the offensive line coach at Arkansas State. Studrawa also served as an offensive line coach at Cincinnati in 1989 and 1990 as well as holding offensive coordinator duties at Wilmington (Ohio) College from 1991-96. He also had a one year stint as a graduate assistant at Ohio State in 1997.
As a player, Studrawa was a two-year starter at left tackle for Bowling Green in 1986 and 1987. He is a native of Fostoria, Ohio.
