Big Ten Blog - ESPN Edsall puts his faith in progress with new contract extension.

Everyone is already fully aware that University of Maryland head football coach has signed a contract extension that could potentially keep him on the sidelines at Byrd Stadium through 2019. However, the pressure is still  not entirely off the shoulders of Mr. Edsall. Although the contract is worth 7.5 million dollars, after Jan.1, 2017 only $500,000 is guaranteed. If Edsall should be fired in 2017 or 2018 the University would only owe him $500,000, and after 2018 they would owe him nothing at all.

You may have already seen this here, but it's certainly a fun quote. "I'm extremely proud of the work my players and staff have put in to making our program what it is today," said Edsall. "It is rewarding for me that Kevin Anderson and Dr. Wallace Loh have recognized this process in getting the program headed in the right direction."
