COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland acknowledged that the football player who collapsed during practice and subsequently died did not receive proper medical
care and the school must accept “legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes.”
Maryland also parted ways with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who resigned in the wake of the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair.
Athletic director Damon Evans acknowledged “mistakes were made” by the training staff in the treatment of McNair, who was hospitalized on May 29 after a team workout and died
June 13. Head trainer Wes Robinson and Steve Nordwall, an assistant athletic director for training, were placed on administrative leave by Maryland last week.
The attorney for the McNair family said a preliminary death certificate indicates the cause of death was heatstroke.

Beane reiterated comments he made at the start of training camp last month by saying he foresees McCoy being in the Bills lineup to start the regular season.
