Mike Locksley, the head coach of the Maryland football team, spent the week before the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, where he made a number of interviews on various radio shows.

As the president and founder of the National Coalition for Minority Football Coaches, Locksley used the opportunity to promote himself and the organization, stressing its positive impact and working to provide opportunities for many gifted minorities in football.

Along with his football squad, Locksley also talked about the new era of college football and how difficult it is these days. In a recent interview with “BMitch & Finlay,” Locksley described how a third-string player came in and asked for $100,000 in NIL money.

Next fall, the Terps will also look different since quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa is leaving and there will be a quarterback competition. Locksley spoke about it all last week when he appeared on “The Bram Weinstein Show” on ESPN 630 AM.

Locksley covered a wide range of topics, including the Coalition, Jim Harbaugh and Nick Saban, the Maryland program’s status, and much more.

“Man, it’s good to see you. As the president and founder of the National Coalition for Minority Football Coaches, I’m currently working on my part-time job. Naturally, we had four minority coaches hired this year: Antonio Pierce here in Vegas, Raheem Morris in Atlanta, [Jerod] Mayo in New England, and David Canales with the Panthers. This is all part of the NFL hiring cycle, which is just about to end. This is an excellent year for minority coaches to get these kinds of chances.

Our organization’s main goals are to develop, support, and generate the future generation of youth, professional, and high school coaches. Through programming, we essentially aim to take coaches to places where they are unable to go on their own while preparing them for the careers they desire. However, we also want to promote them, which is why I’m here at Radio Row: to help some of these coaches who are doing an amazing job and some of these people who were recently hired get opportunities. Finally, but just as importantly, is generating them—that is, providing them with the means to succeed when they take advantage of these possibilities.
