Q: Are there any rumors or names of people who have applied for the DC job? Will they hire from within the staff or are they looking outside of the staff? Joe, Charlestown, MA
A: I had heard Rick Minter, the former DC at Kentucky, was one of the first to call. I’m not sure what they’ll do yet Joe. The focus has been on recruiting but interviews have happened, including the receivers coach at Cincinnati, T.J. Weist, for a position on the offensive side. From my understanding there is a lot of interest in each opening UConn has and the coaches are returning from rubbing elbows at the AFCA convention in Nashville. We’ll see Joe. Keep in mind, if need be, the former defensive coordinator, is still in the house at UConn in Hank Hughes.
