Maryland's board of regents today voted to take control of the two investigations into the university's football program. The board will manage both reviews and receive the findings. The office of the attorney general will represent Maryland in all claims against the university related to the June 13 death of football player Jordan McNair. "Our goal is to ensure that all system universities, including UMCP, are actively working to protect the health and safety of every student and to foster a supportive culture in which everyone can flourish," university system regents chair James Brady said in a statement.
