The New Football Coach at Maryland is

not Mike Leach.

At least according to ESPN.

Randy Edsall reportedly did not return on the Connecticut charter after the Fiesta Bowl, but instead headed to Maryland for contract negotiations. Edsall is 74-70 as head coach of the Huskies. Edsall is a branch off the Tom Coughlin Tree. Edsall played for Coughlin at Syracuse University and later coached under him at Syracuse, at Boston College, and with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As for Leach, he says as far as he knows he is still in the running for the Maryland position.

"Dunno what they're going to do," Leach said in a text message. "My record speaks for itself."
