HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut coach Randy Edsall traveled to Atlanta to meet with Georgia Tech officials about their coaching vacancy, a Huskies official said Thursday night.
Edsall, who served as defensive backs coach at Georgia Tech in 1998, cleared his schedule Thursday, including staff and team meetings, and flew to Georgia for a meeting with Tech officials, said a person at the university with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity because he's not authorized to discuss it.
Edsall led the Huskies to a 9-3 record this season and a berth in the Dec. 29 Meineke Car Care Bowl.
He was asked Tuesday about speculation he was being considered for the Georgia Tech job.
``I've said it many many times, it doesn't matter what line of work you're in, if you have success there's going to be rumors out there and they're rumors,'' he said.
Mike Enright, a spokesman for the athletic department, said the university has a long-standing policy of not commenting on the search process of other schools.
Edsall's trip was first reported by the Hartford Courant on its Web site Thursday night.
Georgia Tech fired Chan Gailey on Monday following a 7-5 campaign. Athletic director Dan Radakovich would only confirm one candidate, defensive coordinator and interim coach Jon Tenuta, who agreed to lead the Yellow Jackets (7-5) in their expected trip to either the Humanitarian or Emerald Bowl. Gailey was 44-32 in six seasons at Georgia Tech.
Edsall is 50-54 in nine years at UConn, which made the move up from Division I-AA in 2002.
