Diaco family gives back to UConn

UConn announced that UConn football coach Bob Diaco and his wife Julia have announced plans to contribute $250,000 to help fund the construction of new soccer, baseball and softball facilities at UConn.

“Our UConn football family is very fortunate to call The Burton Family Football Complex and Mark R. Shenkman Training Center our home,” said Diaco in a statement. “These facilities are among the finest in the nation and fully serve the needs of our football student-athletes. I want all Husky student-athletes and my fellow coaches to be able to enjoy the same caliber of facilities, which they richly deserve.”

Preliminary costs to build the baseball, soccer and softball complexes total $46 million and the UConn Foundation expects to be able to raise $25 million in private donations toward the projects, with a substantial portion of that total already in hand.
