• UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni now must replace both of his coordinators after it was announced that George DeLeone will relinquish his job as offensive coordinator to become associate head coach. He will also coach the offensive line for the second straight year.

"I continue to be excited about the direction of our offensive and I look forward to continue to work with the offensive line - a position group that I have been passionate about my entire coaching career," DeLeone said in a statement released by the university.

The Huskies, 5-7 in each of Pasqualoni's first two seasons, also have to replace defensive coordinator Don Brown, who left for a similar role at Boston College, and running backs coach Clayton White, who left to coach at his alma mater, North Carolina State. White alserve served as the Huskies' special teams coach.

The Hartford Courant reported that T.J. Weist, the former receivers coach at Cincinnati, is the frontrunner to succeed DeLeone as offensive coordinator.
