Connecticut has hired former Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni as its head football coach.
The school says a news conference introducing Pasqualoni would
be held a 12:30 p.m. Friday.
Pasqualoni, the Dallas Cowboys interim defensive coordinator,
was fired by Syracuse after the 2004 season.
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett released a statement Thursday
evening saying UConn was getting "everything that a college
program would want from a leadership perspective."
The 61-year-old native of Cheshire replaces Randy Edsall, who
took the head coaching job at Maryland after leading UConn to an
8-5 season and a berth in the Fiesta Bowl, where the Huskies lost
to Oklahoma 48-20.
