Mike Foley only UConn assistant returning

Offensive line coach Mike Foley is the only UConn assistant coach who will be a part of Bob Diaco's staff, a source confirmed to the Register.

Offensive coordinator T.J. Weist, who served as the interim coach for the final eight games, defensive coordinator Hank Hughes, who has coached at UConn since 1998, Kermit Buggs (running backs/special teams), quarterbacks coach Shane Day (who called the offensive plays during the season-ending three-game winning streak), safeties coach Darrell Perkins, linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator Jon Wholley and cornerbacks coach Shane Fogarty were all let go.

Diaco is in the process of putting together his staff and that will include announcing what role Foley will have on the new staff. Foley had a successful stint coaching the offensive line but when Paul Pasqualoni was hired, he appointed George DeLeone to coach the offensive line and Foley took over coaching the tight ends. When Pasqualoni and DeLeone were fired after an 0-4 start, Foley was moved back to coaching the offensive line.
