UConn AD says Edsall needs more to build program

STORRS, Conn. (AP) Connecticut athletic director David Benedict gave football coach Randy Edsall a vote of confidence Sunday and said it would not be fair to evaluate his program after three losing seasons.

Edsall, who is in his second stint as head coach at UConn, led the Huskies to a 2-10 record this past season, after a 1-11 campaign in 2018 and a 3-9 record in 2017.

Benedict said the coach should be given the opportunity to have five full recruiting classes before anyone decides if he has been a success or failure.
