Randy Edsall Building UConn Football Program, Again

Winning takes time.

Ian Bethune/The UConn Blog

There’s plenty of ways for people to interpret what UConn Huskies head football coach Randy Edsall meant with what he said below at Tuesday’s media availability.

Some people may be thinking is that he really doesn’t care about winning and should be fired. Another thought they could have, is why did athletic director David Benedict even bring him back if the team has not been winning games and could be currently considered the worst football team in FBS at this point of the 2018 season.

So, do people think Edsall really does not really care about winning but rather “losing with loyalty”? That is not the case at all.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Many people out there don’t comprehend what Edsall is charged to actually do. And if they really wanted understand what he is doing, they should look back to the time when he was first hired to bring the program from the FCS level to the FBS level and into a Power Five conference.

Basically, he was hired to build a program back in 1999. And when he was rehired in late 2016, it was to rebuild the program back to the level that was once achieved in Storrs.

Watch below as Edsall describes the process of what it is going to take to get UConn football back to its previous winning ways and a successful future.
