New Haven native DeLeone to be UConn offensive coordinator

New Haven native George DeLeone has been hired as the new offensive coordinator at UConn, according to sources. DeLeone, who turns 63 in May, was the tight ends coach for the Miami Dolphins the past three seasons. The official announcement from UConn could come tomorrow.

So, Joe Moorhead is out at offensive coordinator; but not necessarily at UConn. According to sources, he has some other things in the works. If those don't pan out, he could be back at UConn, perhaps retaining his title of quarterbacks coach.

Also, it appears defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Todd Orlando is set to join Florida International as its new defensive coordinator. Nothing is official, but Orlando could be joining FIU coach Mario Cristobal's staff soon.
