Steve Davis: Don’t Fire Edsall
There was a recent column in the Washington Post suggesting Maryland should fire Randy Edsall after a terrible 2-10 season. Not only does it not make sense, but it’s not going to happen.
The program just killed 8 sports teams. There’s no money to pay off Edsall and his coaches over $10 million. Besides that, how does that make look Kevin Anderson look if he cans his own guy after a year. Not happening.
I know it looks bad right now. Edsall lost a lot of players. That said, you have to give him a chance to implement his system with his players. I don’t know if it will work; in fact, I have my doubts. But I do know if they made the initial investment in the guy, they have to give him a chance.
