Auburn fans really liked him, this is a good read. Lashlee to UConn
Pretty funny. They seem to assume he came here as HC.
There might have been "creative" differences between the HC and Lashlee and as we all know that can break up the best of bands. Great news for UConn. Have my fingers crossed that Randy and the rest of the staff "to be named later" can find a way to get that offensive line competing at a Div 1 level. That's the real key to success. You can bring in the greatest football minds in the business but if nobody blocks on offense then it'll just be a mirror of the last 6 years.
I knocked the Randy hire and was working on accepting it. This is awesome and don't even care who the DC is we gawna score some dam points !!!!!!!! Go Huskies
Courant: Edsall Adds To Staff, Announces Lashlee As UConn's Offensive Coordinator
On autigers.com message board, the mood seems to be "good riddance." One guy called it a "quiet firing." They liked him as a person, not so much as an OC.
I'm literally buying my season tickets next week with my paycheck. I'll deal without a cell phone cuz I am not missing this year's home games
For those of you that want to see what Auburn fans and rest of SEC are saying:

Does our scoreboard even go that high?
It doesn't matter; it's officially an offense now.
Fantastic day for UConn sports all around. Great hire. I do like that he's a power running game guy.
I know its only January 11th, but depending on how this season turns out we could already have our "Post of the Year" winner.
Points off for the typo.
Solid resume, this will be quite a culture shock for him going from the South to Connecticut. Its an unconventional move but great for us. He played under Malzahn in high school, and coached under him his whole career, perhaps it was just time for him to have some space from Malzahn.

Offensive players wanting to play for an SEC OC can now come to UConn. Jordan McAfee, our 6' 4" 220 lb incoming freshman dual threat QB from State Champion Everett MA HS is very excited. Redshirt is likely, but under Lashlee s tutelage, he just might become our version of Cam Newton?! It probably won't be long before we're toilet-papering the UConn oak tree on campus!
I like this idea.
The press release emphasizes "base" salary of $350k. I wouldn't be surprised if there are achievable incentives to make it closer to $450k-$500k.
Now all he has to do is pull in a couple of recruits and maybe steal one or two from down south.
Love the hire and think the spread will be a great offense at UConn.
I was thinking the same thing. I'm willing to bet he's getting full autonomy of the offense and a heavily incentivise contract (similar to Kiffin at FIU)
There has to be more to this story than what's being reported. Nobody takes a $250k cut in salary without some serious motivation to make a move like this one. Was Auburn going to can him?
At any rate, who cares? It looks like AD Dave has hit a home run.
Just got off work. Any good news today?
