No timeline for the succession was announced by the university in a statement Friday. The school scheduled a news conference later Friday with Franklin, Friedgen and athletic director Deborah Yow.
Friedgen has led the Terps for eight seasons. Franklin was an assistant coach from 2000-04 before leaving to become offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Kansas State. He returned to the university last season.
