HARTFORD  – A bill recently passed by the Connecticut state legislature may allow UConn football coach Randy Edsall to retain his son as an assistant coach.

The bill signed into law this month primarily deals with data management but contains a paragraph at the end to allow immediate family members to work in the same “constituent unit” of the state system for higher education with certain conditions.

Edsall is appealing in court a ruling by the state’s ethics office that the school violated Connecticut’s ban on nepotism by hiring Corey Edsall in 2017 as the school’s tight ends coach.

The state board of ethics plans to meet Tuesday to discuss the issue, according to The Hartford Courant, which first reported on the new law Monday.
