Closer look at UConn's assistant coaches

Kevin Wolthausen, seen during his time as an Atlanta Falcons assistant, is part of new UConn staff
Obviously there's a lot of information to go through with the eight new assistant coaches brought in by new head coach Bob Diaco. I thought the most interesting part of the staff he put together is that every coach he brought in is somebody he worked with. So I decided to break it down. The listing of time spent on a staff or staffs with Diaco is in bold type
