COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland head football coach Randy Edsall held court with the media before his team’s fifth practice session of training camp Friday, which also happened to be just hours after the university that employs him formally announced a settlement with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The university released a joint statement with its former conference and said it would have no further comment on the $31.3 million agreement that settles ongoing litigation between the two parties.
In the wake of that, Edsall was predictably short on reaction when pressed two separate times.
“Just glad that it’s over,” he said. “And just, you know, we can just focus on the season and focus on football.”
When asked if this was the final key for his program to fully transition into the Big Ten, he responded similarly.
“You know, like I said. We’re just glad that it’s settled and we can focus on football. End of story.”
Maryland officially began its first year as a member of the Big Ten on July 1, 2014. Edsall and his team begin their season on Aug. 30 against James Madison.
