There could be some changes coming in College Park, as a report from 247 Sports states that Maryland Terrapins head football coach Randy Edsall will be fired by the university after this weekend’s game against Big Ten rival and the defending champion Ohio State Buckeyes “barring a last-minute reversal.”
This is certainly strange news, as Edsall landed a three-year extension from the university after leading the Terps to a 7-6 record in their first Big Ten season last year. Still, that doesn’t take away from the fact that his tenure with the team since coming over from UConn in 2010 has been gravely disappointing.
Under Edsall, Maryland has gone just 22-33 and owns a conference play record, in both the Big Ten and ACC, of 10-23. He is 0-2 in bowl games.
On top of that, Maryland has lost its previous two games to West Virginia and Michigan by a combined score of 73-6. The quarterback situation is an absolute mess, with guys like Caleb Rowe and Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman just not working out.
Needless to say, a change has to be made, and soon.
This story is far from official, but Campus Sports will update it accordingly as new information comes in.
Kickoff between Maryland and Ohio State is slated for 12 p.m. ET in Columbus and will be broadcast on Big Ten Network.
