Randy Edsall extension notably includes $500k buyout


That's a pretty big deal, as Edsall's first contract included no buyout, forcing Maryland to pay the full remainder of his contract if a change was made. Edsall now gets a pay raise, but: "The amendment, however, contains a $500,000 buyout should the university decide between Jan. 16, 2017 and Jan. 15, 2018 that it’s in its "best interest" to make a coaching change. If Edsall is fired between Jan. 16, 2018 and Dec. 31, 2019, the university would not owe him any money."
