From Chick Hernandez and his Twitter feed- barring something unforseen, UConn head coach Randy Edsall is meeting with the Maryland search committee, and the job vacancy would be his to fill if he wants it.

1415 UPDATE: Joe Schad is reporting that Maryland is having a team meeting tonight and that Edsall has, in fact, been chosen as head coach

More when we know more...

Well, we now know more. It's official per the Maryland Athletics website:

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Randy Edsall, who spent the last 12 years taking the University of Connecticut from Division I-AA status (now FCS) to five bowl games, including a BCS contest, has been named Maryland's head football coach, director of athletics Kevin Anderson announced Sunday evening.
Edsall, who will be introduced Monday during a news conference, guided the Huskies to a pair of BIG EAST Conference titles (2007, 2010) and postseason appearances in each of the last four seasons, including the 2011 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
The 2010 BIG EAST Coach of the Year has led the Huskies to eight or more wins in each of the last four seasons as the Huskies successfully made the ascent from Division I-AA.
Prior to his stint in Storrs, Conn., Edsall, a native of Glen Rock, Pa., spent one season (1998) as the defensive coordinator at Georgia Tech and four years (1994-97) as a defensive backs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars who went from expansion team to the AFC Championship game during his tenure.
