DEVELOPING: UConn Fires Pasqualoni

Paul Pasqualoni has been fired as UConn football coach, as well as associate head coach and offensive line head coach George DeLeone in a busy day in Storrs...

Two weeks ago, the Huskies were within a play here or there of upsetting a completely unmotivated Michigan team at Renschler Field. But when you lose to Buffalo in the spectacular fashion in which UConn did Saturday, 41-12, this seemed more of an inevitability...

“I am making this change in our football coaching staff now as we approach the conference season to see an improved performance from our football program,” UConn AD Warde Manuel said in a statement. “I am disappointed in the record of our team thus far, but I am confident that our coaching staff and student-athletes will continue to work hard to improve and that will be reflected on the field of play as we start our American Athletic Conference season.”

The school is holding a press conference this afternoon t name an interim coach...

Looks like it's going to be offensive coordinator T.J. Weist, defensive coordinator Hank Hughes or tight ends coach Mike Foley will assume the role.

Pasqualoni will receive a $750,000 buyout after a 10-18 record- which includes a loss to I-AA Towson...
