Investigation finds Maryland culpable in death of player

Review of Jordan McNair’s death reveals U.Md. trainers didn’t follow proper procedures

It's a clinical approach to the very reason the university system's board of regents meeting drew so much.

While the future of the University of Maryland's athletic director and head football coach are the topic of speculation, a spokesman points out that the board typically can not get involved in school personnel decisions, aside from the hiring and firing of presidents. He died two weeks later, on June 13, from heatstroke.

Piecing together video surveillance footage and interviews with staff and team members, the report found that an hour and seven minutes elapsed between the time McNair first showed symptoms such as hyperventilating, back cramps and fatigue after running sprint repetitions and the time school officials called 911.

"The traffic changes, reporting of ambulance to the upper parking lot versus the field level, loss of access to the [training facility]; all added to the confusion", the report says.

Loh met with the media after Walters presented his findings.

Earlier today, Grassley said that the Senate Judiciary Committee would vote on Monday if no deal is reached by 10 p.m. on Friday. Judge's lawyer said in a letter to the committee on Tuesday that Judge did not recall the incident and did not wish to testify.

"We have protocols and policies which are good, but it is not enough that they are good", the university president said. "They have to be implemented and there has to be training". The family attorney said the cause of death was heatstroke.

In a release issued before the news conference began, the university wrote: "We made immediate changes following Jordan's death and have continued to make enhancements informed by the preliminary observations of the external review (by Walters) we received this summer".

Although the results of the investigation were only made available Friday, Loh said in a statement that the athletic program has begun implementing numerous recommendations included in the report.

The second report is expected in the coming weeks and could come as soon as the end of the month.
