UConn football: Randy Edsall a ‘very strong candidate’ to return


The UConn football program began its search for a new head coach after announcing Bob Diaco would be relieved of his duties effective Jan. 2 following a disappointing 3-9 campaign in 2016.

As the coaching search kicks into high gear, it looks like a very familiar face could be returning to Connecticut.

According to a report from Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com, former UConn head coach Randy Edsall is a “very strong candidate” to reclaim his old job.

During his 12 years leading the Huskies before taking the Maryland job in 2011, Edsall recorded a 74-70 overall record and two conference championships. The program would love to return to that level of success.

After a lackluster tenure leading the Terrapins, Edsall was fired midway through the 2015 season. He currently serves as the director of football research-special projects for the NFL’s Detroit Lions.
