UConn Football Updates, Pendergast, Martin

What’s goin’ on?

UConn Coach Bob Diaco still needs to fill positions for director of football operations, strength and conditioning and player personnel.

Tim Pendergast was let go after initially being retained as the DFO as well as long time strength and conditioning coach Jerry Martin.

It’s my understanding with regards to both of those moves, in a nutshell, they weren’t a good fit going forward with what the program wants to accomplish.

Sometimes change really means change, folks.

They’re both good men. Wishing them nothing but the best here.

Story for tomorrow, or later today online, features defensive coordinator Anthony “Dex” Poindexter and co-defensive coordinator Vincent Brown, both in from the University of Virginia, how they’re going to work together and what they want to accomplish – and of course, look out for the Sunday piece with Ernest Jones and his player engagement position.
