Report: Maryland To Fire Head Coach Randy Edsall

The Maryland Terrapins are expected to fire head football coach Randy Edsall during the team's bye week following this weekend's game against Ohio State, according to InsideMDSports.

Edsall is in the fifth year of his original six-year, $10 million contract, and though he received a three-year extension in June, just $500,000 of that $7.5 million was guaranteed. Maryland is expected to absorb the $2.6 million buyout clause.

One source told InsideMDSports that "nobody in the locker room would leave next year because Edsall is fired. He doesn't have too many fans left in the locker room."

The locker room isn't the only place Edsall doesn't have many supporters.

The fan base has been largely unhappy with Edsall since he was hired to replace Ralph Friedgen in 2011 as he's posted just a 22-33 record - including a 10-23 mark in conference play - in over four seasons with the Terps. Boosters have also been withholding support and donations because of their struggles on the field under Edsall.

Maryland is just 2-3 on the season after suffering blowout losses to Bowling Green, West Virginia, and Michigan. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley is expected to take over has interim head coach.
