UConn finalizes coaching staff, adds a couple of recruits

UConn announced that Dennis Dottin-Carter has been hired as the defensive line coach at UConn. He is the ninth and final assistant coach hired by new/old UConn coach Randy Edsall although it has yet to be announced who will be handling the duties of coaching the special teams.

Dottin-Carter completed the 2016 season as the interim head coach at Delaware as he posted a 2-3 record. He was also the co-defensive coordinator in the last three seasons that he was on the Delaware staff.

Dottin-Carter has a one-year contract that will pay him a base salary of $170,000.

The Delaware defense ranked in the top 25 nationally in run defense, total defense and scoring defense among FCS programs during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

There was more news to report as UConn received commitments from quarterback Garrison Burnett and defensive back Darrian Beavers while former UConn commits Dallas Hobbs and Rob Saulin committed to Washington State and Baylor respectively.

Burnett passed for 1,370 yards and 19 touchdowns, ran for 2,218 yards and 27 TDs and had three touchdown receptions as a senior at the Maret School in Washington, D.C.

I want to announce that I have verbally committed to take my talents to UConn!! #GloryBeToGod #GoHuskies #HuskyUp

Beavers, a safety in the 6-foot-4/6-foot-5 200-pound range, had two interceptions as a senior at the Colerian School in Cincinnati to an 11-0 start before suffering an overtime loss to eventual Ohio Division I champion St. Xavier in the regional semifinals.

Blessed and appreciative to say I have committed to UCONN 🔵⚪️🔴
