No one will ever be able to accuse Randy Edsall of not being able to look on the bright side of the situation.
Take, for instance, the case of Dave DeGuglielmo -- the NFL coaching veteran and former New York Jets offensive line coach who accepted Edsall's offer to become Maryland's new line coach six days ago. But even before DeGuglielmo had formally met with the media in College Park, he left the Terps to return to the NFL with an as-yet-unidentified team, Maryland confirmed in an announcement Wednesday.

From the statement, here's Edsall's response to losing a member of his coaching staff who'd served for less than a week:

“I would like to congratulate Dave on this exciting opportunity for his career,” said Edsall. “Dave is a great coach who brings a wealth of experience and will be a valued asset at the next level. We are honored that NFL teams pursue members of our coaching staff as we feel this is a compliment to our program. I will immediately begin the search for Dave's replacement in an effort to assemble the best possible coaching staff to lead our student-athletes."
