The University of Maryland and head football coach Randy Edsall have reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension, the athletic department announced Tuesday morning.
The terms of the extension were not disclosed.
“Randy has made good strides in our first year in the Big Ten, and our program is headed in the right direction,” athletics director Kevin Anderson said in a statement.
“He has established a culture in which our students have made strong progress academically with outstanding graduation rates. We have made progress, and we will look to continue to build upon what we have established with our goal of competing at the highest level in the Big Ten.”
Through four seasons at Maryland, Edsall has amassed an overall record of 20-30 and made two bowl appearances — the Military Bowl in 2013 and the Foster Farms Bowl in 2014, both losses.
Maryland has gained momentum on the recruiting trail of late, especially locally. The commitment of four-star quarterback Dwayne Haskins has laid the foundation for a 2016 recruiting class that is expected to be full of talented local players.
"I'm extremely proud of the work my players and staff have put in to making our program what it is today,” Edsall said in a release. “It is rewarding for me that Kevin Anderson and Dr. Wallace Loh have recognized this process in getting the program headed in the right direction."
