After football player Jordan McNair died after a spring workout, the University of Maryland has struggled to respond to criticism over how McNair’s death could have been prevented and how leadership has –or hasn’t– been held accountable.

Washington Post reporter Roman Stubbs joins us to discuss the fallout over the Maryland Board of Regents’ decision to retain, then oust, head coach D.J. Durkin. We’ll also discuss President Wallace Loh’s role in the controversy, and an upcoming review of the school’s accreditation.
