Today, the University of Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson relieved head coach Randy Edsall of his duties after five years on the job.
In that time, Edsall compiled a record of 4-6 in the Big Ten and 22-34 overall. Edsall was 0-12 against ranked teams during his tenure.
This past Saturday, perhaps rallying around the news that Edsall was going to be shown the door, Maryland hung with Ohio State in Columbus before ultimately succumbing to the Buckeyes by 21-points.
The Maryland program is looking to improve the program since joining the Big Ten, and the move was made because of the lackluster effort in the first half of the season. The decision comes just four months removed from the announcement of a contract extension for Edsall.
Offensive Coordinator Mike Locksley will take over the interim tag through the remainder of this season and be considered when the off-season coaching search is conducted.
