Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa is returning to the Maryland Terrapins for one more season in 2023.

Tagovailoa passed for 221 yards and a touchdown in a 16-12 win against NC State in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl on Dec. 30.

He earned second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2022 by completing 67.0 percent of his passes for 3,008 yards, 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also rushed for four scores.

The rising redshirt senior made the announcement Wednesday.

“My goal when coming to Maryland was to help coach (Mike) Locksley turn this program around,” Tagovailoa said. “After winning back-to-back bowl games, I believe we have things going in the right direction. But we’re not done yet. I’m not done yet.”

Since transferring from Alabama ahead of the 2020 season, the younger brother of Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa has set the Terrapins’ career records for completions (665), passing yards (7,879) and passing TDs (51).
