UMD Coach Randy Edsall Allows Players to Transfer to Vanderbilt

University of Maryland head coach Randy Edsall has reversed his initial decision and will now allow quarterback Danny O’Brien and two other players to transfer to Vanderbilt, according to USA Today.

"While at first I thought it was important to limit the institutions to which they could transfer, I have since reconsidered my decision," Edsall said in a statement. "At the end of the day, I want what's best for these guys and I wish them well in their futures."

Edsall had previously denied the players’ request to transfer to Vanderbilt.  The coach was highly criticized by local and national media as Vanderbilt was neither a future opponent or members of the ACC. They are, however, coached by the former Terps offensive coordinator James Franklin.

Edsall has filed a formal complaint with the ACC, accusing Franklin of having improper contact with O'Brien before the player decided to transfer.  As a freshman under Franklin, O’Brien threw for 2,438 yards and 22 touchdowns.
