Ex-UConn coach Pasqualoni hired by Bears

The Chicago Bears officially named former UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni as its defensive line coach.

The hiring has been reported in multiple outlets over the past week or so as Pasqualoni is one of the new assistant coaches being brought in to work with a defense which set franchise records for points (478), rushing yards (2,583) and total yards (6,313) given up.

Pasqualoni, who came to UConn after stints with the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys, posted a 10-18 record at UConn before he was fired after the Huskies got off to an 0-4 start.

Also, there have been multiple reports that former quarterbacks coach Shane Day has been added to the offensive staff by new Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden. Day worked with the quarterbacks with the Chicago Bears before heading to UConn. I thought he did an exceptional job with Casey Cochran who made remarkable progress from summer camp to the final couple of games in the regular season.
