The Stan Simpson Show – The return of Randy Edsall

HARTFORD -- UConn football writer Mike Anthony joined Stan Simpson to talk about whether the second time around will be a good thing for Randy Edsall and UConn.

Edsall will coach the UConn football team again, after a prior 1999-2010 stint in the job.

"Thank you for the opportunity to be able to come back and finish something that I started many years ago," he said.

Edsall left Storrs after a loss in a bowl game on New Year's Day 2011 and went to coach in Maryland. He compiled a 22-24 record while leading the Terripans before being fired midway through his fifth season there.

The move comes just days after Bob Diaco was fired following a 3-9 season that was marred by poor offensive play and inconsistent performances on both sides of the ball. Diaco went 11-26 in his three-year tenure with the Huskies and failed to improve upon last season’s 6-7 mark that included an appearance in the St. Petersburg Bowl against Marshall.
