The Huskies have a new coach.
UConn has announced Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco as its new head coach. Diaco replaces interim coach T.J. Weist, who took over after Paul Pasqualoni was fired early in the season.
Diaco won the Broyles Award (the nation’s best assistant coach) in 2012 and worked at Notre Dame from 2010-13.
Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Diaco made stops as an assistant at Cincinnati, Virginia and Central Michigan.
Diaco should be a good hire for UConn, but the first-time head coach needs to find a fix for the Huskies' offense. UConn has struggled on offense in recent years, so Diaco's offensive coordinator hire will be crucial.
