Maryland is the latest program to slash salaries during the pandemic.

Another day goes by in the world of sports and we get more bad coronavirus news! Granted, we haven’t heard anything about salaries in a minute or two, but this isn’t a new trend.

During the summer, it seemed like another program was cutting pay with every single new day that passed.

Hopefully, the Maryland coaches get the money back at some point down the road. It’s just a really unfortunate situation for everyone involved.
