Terps Coach Edsall Poised for Return to UConn

Posted:

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)- As much as Maryland coach Randy Edsall would like to pretend otherwise, the matchup between the Terrapins and Connecticut this Saturday isn't just another game.

It couldn't be, given Edsall's 12-year tenure as the Connecticut head coach before he abruptly left to take the job at Maryland after the 2010 season.

Edsall coached the Huskies in their 48-20 loss to Oklahoma in the 2010 Fiesta Bowl, then flew to Maryland for a job interview rather than returning home with his team.

Edsall has apologized for the way he handled the situation. Upon returning to UConn for the first time, he's looking to get the Terrapins to 3-0.

He said Tuesday, "The attention and the focus need to be on preparing this week and playing the best game we can."
