Maryland culpable in death of Jordan McNair

The University System of Maryland board of regents sent information to the attorneys following a letter sent earlier Thursday by law firm Murphy, Falcon & Murphy saying the family had not been updated on the status of the report.

McNair was hospitalized on May 29 after a strenuous offseason workout and the 19-year-old offensive lineman later died on June 13.

"There was a failure to identify escalating symptoms associated with exertional heat illness including assessing vital signs, identifying the condition and aggressively treating the patient's elevating core temperature", Walters said.

In a tweet following the publication of the Walters report, the university said, "After the tragic death or our student-athlete Jordan McNair, we have made changes across all sports & pledge to do more". Additionally, Walters said that McNair was not placed in an ice bath when he should have been, though the investigation said this was due to size and seizure concerns. The results will be used to help determine the fate for coach D.J. Durkin, who is now on administrative leave.

Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke Hold First US Senate Race Debate
The Texas GOP has also posted photos of O'Rourke's college punk rock band and his mug shot for a 1998 DWI on Twitter. Politico reported Friday that O'Rourke received over $ 9 million in online contributions in August.

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. "They have to be implemented and there has to be training".

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. University President Wallace Loh and Athletic Director Damon Evans held a press conference in August where it was announced that the school had parted ways with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who resigned in the wake of McNair. "The University accepts legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes that were made on that fateful day".

Loh distinguished between training staff and coaching staff last month when he spoke about mistakes that led to McNair's death, but added the reports of "bullying behavior" by football coaches "are totally inconsistent with what we stand for, and our values". "They misdiagnosed the situation". Loh also announced on Tuesday that a commission was being formed to investigate the allegations against the football staff.
