After coming out to a 13-0 lead Saturday against the University of Illinois, the Huskies ultimately fell to the Big Ten opponent, 31-23.
The Huskies currently have five quarterbacks on their roster, not including the newly committed Russell Dixon, and the coaching staff made it clear that all five will be given a chance to win the starting job. However, there really are three that are serious contenders, and quarterbacks coach Mike Moyseenko broke them each down.
With an earlier-than-usual spring schedule, and a new strength coach, UConn football is undergoing a culture shift in year three of Randy Edsall’s second stint in Storrs.
“Having the schedule that we had, I think it’s been very beneficial to us. You can see it, their bodies, they’re getting stronger,” Edsall said. “That was one of the objectives that we had by moving spring practice up as early as we did, so we can get more time in the weight room.”
“After evaluating the program throughout the season and during the recruiting process, I decided to make these changes to my staff,” head coach Randy Edsall said in a statement. “I appreciate all the work these four men have done and thank them for their effort and dedication during their time at UConn.”
