About Coach Randy Edsall

Randy Edsall begins his second stint as the UConn head football coach after being with the program for 12 seasons from 1999-2010. He led the program from Division I-AA status in 1999 to an appearance in the Bowl Championship Series and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl following the 2010 season.

Coach Edsall returns to UConn from the NFL’s Detroit Lions where he was Director of Research — Special Projects. Prior to that he served as head football coach of the University of Maryland from 2011-2015.

During his time in Storrs, the program blossomed from a major college football newcomer to a team that made five bowl appearances in seven years and four consecutive. He has recorded the most wins in program history (74) and coached in the most games (144). In addition to being the winningest coach in school history, Edsall’s coaching record in the school’s first nine FBS seasons (2002-2010) was 65-46.
