May 29, RANDALLSTOWN, MD-native MARYLAND TERRAPINS Offensive Lineman JORDAN McNAIR collapsed during an outdoor team workout, and two weeks later; he passed away!!!

JORDAN McNAIR was only 19-years-old.

ESPN  reports the May 29 workout was organized and led by the TERRAPINS Strength and Conditioning Staff and began at about 4:15 T.

JORDAN had a seizure at about 5:00 PM


McNAIR Family Attorney BILLY MURPHY stated;
"Our reading of the medical records and the 911 call Maryland made to the EMT to come to the field reveal that 45 minutes into the practice, he had convulsions and a seizure on the field, and the 911 call reflects emergency personnel noted McNair had experienced a seizure."
"Our preliminary investigation reveals there is an unexplained one-hour time period when nothing significant was done to avoid the complications of heatstroke. Although there is some evidence they allegedly tried to cool him down, he should have been iced immediately. He presented at the hospital with a temperature of 106, which means he was not cooled down.
We're very concerned about the unexplained one hour between the time of the seizure and hyperventilating that was observed by a coach, and what happened in that remaining hour before the EMT people were actually called. This points to an utter disregard of the health of this player, and we are extraordinarily concerned that the coaches did not react appropriately to his injury."
UNIVERSITY Of MARYLAND issued a statement;
"At no point before or during the external review has a student-athlete, athletic trainer or coach reported a seizure occurring at 5 p.m.
"We will be able to speak in greater detail when the review is complete and shared with the public. Our consultant has work to do to finish this investigation. We will take appropriate action when we have the full details. Our thoughts remain with Jordan McNair's family, friends and teammates."
MARYLAND Athletic Director DAMON EVANS said the team gathered for a scheduled, supervised workout around 4:15 PM, and that Jordan McNair completed the workout before becoming ill.
One TERRAPIN Player said;
There's no way he finished on his own, There were multiple people that said, 'Wow, Jordan looks f---ed up, he doesn't look all right,'" the player said. "We knew he was really exhausted, but we didn't know he was in danger of his life. But that doesn't mean that a medical professional shouldn't know to put him in an ice tub. It was a good [distance] for a guy in his state to be walking, and it was away from the athletic training building, away from any resource that he probably needed at the time. Probably 100 percent the opposite way."
A second player said;
"Jordan was obviously not in control of his body. He was flopping all around. There were two trainers on either side of him bearing a lot of weight. They interlocked their legs with his in order to keep him standing."
"They tried to walk him for a while after he collapsed. His head, he barely had control over it. His head was limp to the point where it was back. They were walking him across the field to get him up and moving, I guess. But then they basically took him over to position drills, which took a long time. I didn't see them bring him in, but it was a while."
Earlier today UNIVERSITY Of MARYLAND President WALLACE D. LOH stated the UNIVERSITY Of MARYLAND ACCEPTS FULL LEGAL And MORAL RESPONSIBILITY For The DEATH Of JORDAN McNAIR.
Dr. WALLACE D. LOH stated that earlier today, Tuesday, August 14, he and DAMON EVANS visited with the McNair family in BALTIMORE;
 "to express on behalf of the university our apology for the loss of their son on that fateful day of May 29th.
"They entrusted their son to us, and he did not return home.
"We will do everything within our power to ensure that no University of Maryland student-athlete is ever again put in a situation where his or her safety and life are at foreseeable risk,"
DAMON EVANS said;
"The care provided was not consistent with best practices and heat illness was not properly identified or treated," 
"We will not tolerate any behavior from any employee within Maryland athletics that is detrimental to the mental or physical well-being of our student athletes."  
TERRAPINS Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Performance RICK COURT has resigned.

RICK COURT stated through a letter;
"The football student-athletes' mental and physical health remain my number one priority; thus I am stepping down to allow the team to heal and move forward. I will continue to cooperate with the University's investigations and I will be transparent with inquiries while respecting the legal process. I will also ensure a smooth transition, so the team is well-prepared for the approaching football season."
Head Coach DJ DURKIN is placed on ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE. Offensive Coordinator MATT CANADA is named INTERIM HEAD COACH
