Randy Edsall’s tenure at UConn is ending much sooner than expected. Just a day after announcing he planned to retire from coaching at the end of the season, Edsall has now stepped down immediately. UConn has now installed an interim head coach.

The coaching change follows UConn’s 38-28 loss to Holy Cross on Saturday. UConn is 0-2 on the 2021 season, as it lost the first week to Fresno State 45-0.

Edsall has coached at UConn 2 different stints. The first stint started in 1999 and ended in 2010, when he left for Maryland. The second UConn tenure started in 2017. Edsall’s second tenure has been a struggle, as he’s compiled a 6-32 overall record, and he’s 80-102 in both stints at UConn.

UConn opted out of playing the 2020 season due to COVID-19, and the return in 2021 has been brutal, with Saturday’s loss to Holy Cross being rock bottom.

The UConn Huskies are FBS Independent.
