Sophomore linebacker Avery Murray has left the Maryland football program, coach Ralph Friedgen said.
Friedgen said Murray, who made seven tackles in 10 games last season, departed for personal reasons.
Murray was expected to be the top backup at middle linebacker to Alex Wujciak. Sophomore Ryan Donohue is also a backup to the all-conference pick from a year ago.
Friedgen said the Terps would see how freshman David Mackall does at middle linebacker during camp. Mackall, who arrived in January after a semester at prep school, played at strong-side linebacker during the spring.
