ND’s Diaco picked as new UConn coach

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Bob Diaco made quite an impression in his first news conference as UConn’s head football coach.

The former Notre Dame defensive coordinator was introduced Thursday after signing a five-year, $8 million deal. His salary will rise from $1.5 million in the first year to $1.7 million in the fifth.

An enthusiastic Diaco quoted everyone from St. Augustine (in Latin) to Garth Brooks in explaining how he plans to build the Huskies into a championship program.

Diaco said the winning will start immediately, whether that is in the classroom or offseason conditioning, but could not say how soon that might translate into bowl games or championships.

The 40-year-old Diaco says he will meet with the current UConn coaching staff before deciding on his staff.

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
