 Q: Over the past several years, the Huskies have been OK defense and have sent several defensive players to the NFL. So why weren’t some of the defensive coaches retained? Charles Rubano, New Milford

A: Hi Charles. I think most coaches like to bring in the people they’re comfortable with. That’s not uncommon,  I also think new UConn coach Bob Diaco spoke directly to this one. Here’s what he said last month abiout keeping Mike Foley, the only assistant retained from the 2013 staff: “Through all the counsel and everyone that I’ve talked to, players and coaches alike, he was the one consistent name and the one consistent evaluation that fits with the DNA of the program moving forward, And I’m excited about that.”…..  Thanks Charles
