Maryland says Randy Edsall will coach against Ohio State

Randy Edsall will coach the Maryland against No. 1 Ohio State on Saturday, the school announced Thursday as rumors swirled about the coach's job status going forward.

The embattled Edsall is likely to be fired following Saturday's game against the Buckeyes as the Terps enter a bye week, according to a report by InsideMDSports.com.

Maryland, in a statement provided to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, said: "Randy Edsall is our head football coach and he'll be on the sidelines Saturday against Ohio State."

Edsall, 57, is 22-33 during his tenure with the Terrapins following a 2-3 start this season. He is 10-23 in conference play, posting a 6-18 mark in the ACC and going just 4-5 since the Maryland moved to the Big Ten. The Terps were blanked 28-0 by Michigan last Saturday.

Edsall, currently in the fifth year of his original six-year, $10 million deal, received a three-year extension in July, but just $500,000 of the $7.5M of the extension is guaranteed.
