Some UConn Football Numbers To Keep In Mind, On And Off Field

On Dec. 28, Randy Edsall signed an agreement to return as UConn football coach (a formal contract will follow within 60 days). He has agreed to a five-year deal that guarantees a $1 million salary, plus incentives that can boost his pay by $100,000 each season. Edsall is also eligible for retention bonuses of $300,000 in Dec. 2019 and $200,000 in 2021.

All in all, the agreement is a bargain for an experienced coach. Edsall and UConn athletic director David Benedict view the performance-based deal as fair to both parties, and a return to winning will reward both Edsall and UConn financially, especially if attendance at Rentschler Field increases.
