UConn OC Dunn leaving to join New York Jets
Storrs — UConn's John Dunn, who was promoted to offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach following the 2018 football season, resigned on Friday to accept the tight ends coaching job with the New York Jets, head coach Randy Edsall announced.
Offensive line coach Frank Giufre was promoted to replace Dunn and oversee the offense.
"I want to wish John well with the Jets and thank him for his contributions to our program this past year," Edsall said in a release. "I'm very excited to promote Frank to offensive coordinator. He will do an outstanding job continuing the system we have in place and will provide stability for what we want to do moving forward this season and for many seasons to follow."
Guifre joined the Huskies in 2018 after spending six years as the offensive quality control coach with the Indianapolis Colts. His first offensive line helped produce a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in quarterback David Pindell and running back Kevin Mensah.
In addition, Edsall announced that running backs coach Mike Moyseenko will move from runnings back coach to quarterbacks coach and East Lyme's Kyle Weiss, a Wesleyan graduate, will assume Moyseenko's former role as running backs coach after spending the 2018 season as UConn's quality control coach.
