Hughes named UConn's defensive coordinator
As expected, head coach Paul Pasqualoni promoted defensive line coach Hank Hughes to defensive coordinator. Hughes will continue to work with the defensive line.
It will be Hughes' second stint as the Huskies' defensive coordinator as he held the title from 2002-10 before Pasqualoni brought in Don Brown to run the defense. Brown left to take the same position at Boston College.
Also, former receivers coach Matt Cersosimo moves over to coach the cornerbacks as UConn's coaching staff has been finalized.
