A longtime college football head coach has announced that he’s retiring following the conclusion of the regular season.
Randy Edsall, 63, announced on his Twitter account on Sunday afternoon that he will be retiring following the season.
“After 17 years of service at the University of Connecticut as its head football coach, I’ve decided to retire at the end of the season,” Edsall’s statement reads.
“Back in 2017 I made a commitment to the University, but felt it was better to make this announcement now rather than the end of the year to allow the University ample time to prepare for the future of the football program.”
“All my focus and attention for the rest of the season will be to prepare our players and coaches to go out and win as many games as possible.”
