    Sorry SportsArt- gotta do another thread- mostly to have fun with the haters and those who wouldn't mind him back but just in case lightening strikes twice- who is on the Coaching staff?

    Do we see a return of Hank Hughes as D Line coach? Would you want Mike Foley to be O Line coach? Jon Wholley to be O Coordinator? Terry Richardson RB coach? Corey Edsall as WR coach? Lyndon Johnson? Todd Fitch?

    Or do you see a whole new crew of guys from the NFL and or Maryland?

    The whole crew needs to hit the streets IMO. This a rebuild from ground up. Not a single phase of the game is exceptionally note worthy... maybe special teams punt coverage from repetitive in game practice.

    No matter who comes in, I wouldn't mind Terry Richardson to come with them.

    Only way Edsall comes back is as a spectator. Benedict can't afford to alienate most of the fan base that's left.

    Let's just get the whole gang back together.....and yeah let's see him bring in Wholley as OC as you suggest...@hardcorehusky I was gonna give you the benefit of the doubt but O is no where near D on the keyboard so this is a joke.

    Edsall scores extra points with the fans if he brings in Weist as OC. Either TJ or someone who can run Moorhead's offense.

    Yeah, it would be terrible to get back to some old fashioned winning.

    What was his conference record in a disbanding Big East? last I saw it was 22-26. What was his record at his "dream job"? conference records totaled a whopping 10-24 and his over all record in the big boys leagues was 22-34. No thanks.

    You do realize that both Ambrose and Moorehead couldn't run their offenses when they were OC under Edsall right? What Ambrose has run at Towson and what Moorehead ran at Akron, Fordham, and now PSU is NOT what they ran at UConn! Never mind the fact he man still doesn't know how to come up with a scheme to defend the spread!

    If he alienates you, I'm cool with that.

    You're telling me 2009's high scoring offense was all Edsall? I was willing to give the credit to Moorhead.

    Nobody knows how to defend a well run spread, that's why it's so popular.

    Edsall is not my first choice (Moorhead) but I don't understand the notion that it would be terrible if he were the guy. The guy ran a CLEAN well respected program with emphasis on CLEAN. We have people touting Miles and Schiano which to me is like openly advocating recruiting violations which other schools might get away with but ain't gonna work at UCONN.

    High scoring? What games did you watch....IMHO if Edsall is hired the season ticket base will remain about the same...for every one that comes back there will be those of us who leave. Newsflash to you about RU...Flood was the guy in that issue..NOT Schiano!

    This is very true. I remember there being rumblings that Moorehead was never given full reign of the offense so he couldn't run the spread offense he wanted to (my memory sucks so I can't recall where I heard this). I remember getting real excited when they brought him in as OC because we'd finally gave a high powered offense. Then the season started and it was the same offense.

    I am not thrilled with the thought of hiring Randy and the biggest reason being that he had a hard time taking his hands off things that could be run better by a coordinator ala Diaco.

    Good question ... and certainly ... UConn has some history of retaining the old regime.

    Love to see Terry Richardson, Mike Foley ... maybe Lyndon Johnson + Darrell Perkins

    Each of them are excellent coaches. I would retain both. Dex can coach DB's. Hergy is entering a huge year. Big emphasis on coaching up Skales, Beals and Garland along with Hergy and Tyler

    Doubt that Dex will be DC. Will he stay?

    Yes, that's what I was thinking. Both seem like quality coaches. I will entrust Edsall to determine if Poindexter can stay as DC or not. For all we know P's style is aggressive but Diaco boxed him in in terms of approach and game prep/scheme.

    For recruiting alone -- Michael Anthony Locksley. He was OC for Edsall at Maryland. He is currently the offensive analyst for the University of Alabama. He was interim HC at Maryland.

    Would be a good hire, but Bama probably pays him more as an analyst than we paid Edsall.

    Who wants to bet we pick up a couple of track stars who have FCS scholarships right now?

    Former Maryland OC Mike Locksley took big pay cut to join Alabama staff

    "As an offensive analyst at Alabama, Locksley doesn't have a contract and will make $45,000 annually, according to records obtained by AL.com. Locksley was the 14th highest-paid assistant nationally last year and the highest-paid in the Big Ten, according to USA Today. "

    I think those two are the only coaches worthy of consideration....and Wolthhausen (spelling) too?? seemed active in recruiting.

    Diaco is a weird dude though, I bet he will frown on anyone on his staff who joins with Edsall...ah just another thing to make me smile.

    Will R.Edsall bring in Paul Pasqualoni as DC ? Mack Brown on a ESPN telecast called him one great coach. Why stop there and just replace K.Ollie with Jim Calhoun.

    Absolutely love Erik Campbell... nice track record developing WRs... Jury's still out on him.. Gotta keep him...
    Can Poindexter adjust his defensive philosophy to NOT be as passive as it has been? Then yes. If not, Buh-bye
