Maryland's officially moving to the Big Ten next season, and the Terrapins have locked up their offensive coordinator to a new three-year deal, according to Bruce Feldman from CBS. The extension should pay Mike Locksley " in excess of $600,000 per year." Maryland's offense was dynamic when healthy and as Feldman notes, Locksley is a key recruiter on Randy Edsall's staff.

From CBS:

Locksley directed a Terrapin offense that eclipsed the 3,000-yard passing mark for only the fourth time in program history and the first time since the 1994 season. The Terps averaged 14.05 yards per completion in 13 games, the 16th-highest average nationally among FBS programs despite losing two of the country's better receivers.
The Terrapins should get Stefon Diggs and Deon Long back next season, and they'll need that offense to play at a high level against some of the tougher Big Ten defenses in 2014. Maryland went 7-6 and 3-5 in conference in their final season in the ACC, losing 31-20 to Marshall in the Military Bowl.
