Son's future at UConn among comments from Jack Cochran in interview

Jack Cochran, who is in his first season as the head football coach at Harding High after leading Bloomfield, New Britain and New London to a combined eight state titles, is not one to mince words. So when he appeared on the Laxworm X High School show on he gave an honest answer to what he thinks his son Casey should consider doing at the end of the season.

Cochran said that Casey, a backup redshirt freshman quarterback at UConn, figures to be on his third offensive coordinator in three years which is the nicest way of him saying he expects Paul Pasqualoni and his staff to be shown the door by season's end. The elder Cochran said he'd Casey to consider transferring from UConn.

"I just left, I went to the Michigan game and I got to see him after the game," Cochran said in an interview conducted earlier today. "The biggest thing now is he has to be happy with where he is in football, right now he is on his second offensive coordinator and at the quarterback position it is thousands of hours to learn the playbook and the chances are he is going to be his third offensive coordinator next year. He has to sit back and think about what he wants to do his last two years of college. I’d like him to maybe take a step back and go somewhere where it is not as business like in hours and just have a little bit of fun for the rest of his career."

So has Casey, who has fallen behind true freshman Tim Boyle in the battle for the No. 2 quarterback spot, expressed any interest in transferring?

"No, he’s on UConn now and he loves it there," Jack Cochran said. "He loves the kids on the team and enjoys it. I am not saying he is going to leave but with a third offensive coordinator in three years it is going to be tough. It is early in the morning, late at night just trying to learn a new offense. He’s got to enjoy it too, right now it is early in the morning and late at night and it is not too much other than football."

Other topics are raised in the interview with Cochran and his segment starts at the 25:00 mark
