McNair's parents: Keep DJ Durkin away from players

Canada spoke to some of the changes the team has made in recent weeks to improve health and safety, including giving players two breaks per practice. Underneath the awnings are several fans, liquids and ice.

HILL AND PIGROME PRACTICING: Last season was quickly derailed after the Terps' top two quarterbacks, Tyrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill, each went down with ACL tears in September. McNair died June 13.

An attorney for the McNair family said Jordan suffered a seizure and that university training staff did not call 911 for assistance for almost an hour.

When asked at Tuesday's press conference what responsibility the head coach has in McNair's death, Evans responded, "At the end of the day, we've got to take a look at that".

"The athletic training staff, not the coaching staff-they basically misdiagnosed the situation", Loh said at the news conference.

And they took it a step further. Two new white tents were set up as hydrating stations, stocked with water, Gatorade and snacks.

Head coach DJ Durkin was placed on administrative leave Saturday after McNair's death and a subsequent ESPN report revealing that coaches bullied players. "Our culture right now is awesome".

"I think our practices have been extremely crisp", he said. "Our kids are excited to play, and they're loving each other".

Still, Clayton hasn't floated reducing the number of times that companies must disclose their financial performance each year . Other critics say companies should be required to report quarterly earnings but not quarterly guidance.

That's not to say that McNair isn't on their minds.

"I believe I'm the one that can lead us through these very hard times".

"We will not tolerate any behavior from any employee within Maryland athletics that is detrimental to the mental or physical well-being of our student-athletes", Evans said. I thought he was only like that because it was his first time coaching us. No players were made available.

Loh said he apologized to Jordan McNair's parents in a private meeting Tuesday morning for the team's mishandling of their son's medical needs.

McNair's death and the ensuing revelation that some members of the staff were physically and verbally abusive brought about the resignation of Rick Court, the strength and conditioning coach. He had previously been placed on administrative leave.

Billy Murphy, an attorney representing the family, has told multiple outlets that a lawsuit against the school is likely. 247 Sports reported Thursday afternoon that the family won't discuss a potential settlement with the school until Durkin is no longer the coach.

"Our entire staff has done a tremendous job of coming together, of bonding together of making it about our players", Canada said. "It's awesome what you can accomplish when nobody cares who's getting the credit, and we're seeing that right now in our building".

"We're pulling them from all parts of our department".
