Maryland dismisses Edsall

Maryland pulled the plug on the Randy Edsall era, as the Terrapins head coach was informed Sunday morning that he was being dismissed. A press conference with athletic director Kevin Anderson is expected to take place at 4 p.m. ET today. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, who previously had a rough stint at New Mexico as head coach, will be the interim head man in College Park. He went 2-26 with the Lobos. The Terps sit at 2-4 following their 49-28 loss to Ohio State this weekend, and all four of their defeats have been by at least three touchdowns this fall. After the loss to the Buckeyes, Edsall left his press conference abruptly after he was being asked questions regarding his job status amid reports that he was about to get canned. The 57-year-old Edsall led the Terps to bowl games in each of the past two seasons but was just 22-34 in College Park with the Terps. He is owed a $3.1 million buyout. In addition, assistant head coach/outside linebackers coach Lyndon Johnson has been relieved of his coaching duties.
