Richardson replaces Andre Powell, who recently left Maryland for Pittsburgh.

A former Syracuse and NFL running back, Richardson was the running backs coach at Connecticut from Edsall's first season as the Huskies' coach in 1999 until Edsall left for the Terps in 2011.

Richardson spent two seasons as the running backs coach at Miami before being hired by the Jaguars in 2013. He was fired by the Jaguars Jan. 27.

Sports Illustrated first reported Richardson's hire.
