Maryland intends to fire Randy Edsall as its football coach, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to Yahoo Sports on Thursday afternoon. However, the timing for the intended termination is unclear.
The news was first reported Thursday by InsideMDsports.com, the 247 fan site that covers the Terrapins. The website said the firing likely would happen Saturday after Maryland’s game against No. 1 Ohio State.
Yahoo Sports confirmed with a source Maryland’s intention to fire Edsall, but the source could not confirm that the fifth-year coach would be forced out after the game Saturday. The team has a bye week following the Ohio State game, which could provide an easier transition to an interim coach.
In response to the initial report, Maryland spokesman Zack Bolno told The Washington Post on Thursday afternoon, “Randy Edsall is our football coach and he will be on the sideline Saturday for Ohio State."
