The University of Maryland has fired head football coach Randy Edsall, according to the Diamondback.

Edsall left his post as head coach of the UConn football team in 2011 to take what his self-proclaimed dream job as coach of the University of Maryland football team.

Rumors had been circulating over the past week about his removal as head coach of the Terrapins. Maryland lost to number one Ohio State on Saturday, and Edsall walked out of a post-game press conference after a question.

The Diamondback said Edsall is still owed more than $2.6 million. Assistant head coach Lyndon Johnson was also fired.

The paper said offensive coordinator Mike Locksley was named interim head coach. Locksley was a head coach at New Mexico for two season.

Edsall was 22-34 at Maryland and 0-12 against Top 25 opponents, according to the paper. The team was 2-3, with all three losses by 21 points or more.
