    ...Very busy. Heard from a reliable source that he has already selected his DC. An announcement coming soon.

    Jon Wholley formally of UConn, now of Fordham?? Rob Lunn tweeted that Wholley was coming back here. Could be interesting?

    Good I'm glad you let the cat out of the bag and not me. Lol. Didn't get it from a tweet though, was told by a former coach.

    Hopefully not as D.C., but in some lesser capacity

    You are saying that JW is being named DC for UConn?

    I'm glad he's on the staff, but as the DC?? That would be a surprising move, that's for sure...

    I guess it's possible that it could be same title as he currently has - "co-defensive coordinator/linebackers coach", but Lunn seemed pretty dialed in on this one. We'll find out soon enough early next week.

    Guess is as good as mine. FWIW the OC/DC/Asst Coach postings are scheduled to close at 11:59 PM eastern on January 9, 2017 (Monday).

    Alright. Early next week is a better prediction. Let's all hang on and see how it all shakes out.

    When the snow heard RE was in the area, it cleared itself.

    Am I the only one who thinks the new staff is already in place and working in the shadows of anonymity? They're just waiting until Edsall's season with the Lions is over to have a press conference to announce everything. Somebody has to be talking to recruits.

    Nope - I agree to an extent and we already know that Randy was actively talking to recruits about upcoming official/non-official visits.

    If Wholley is the DC we better have a half hour of better bedding bloopers every game.

    Those bloopers were from the 70's. The new ones could tie up Diaco's coaching tenure for next years home schedule.

    His dad and uncle owned it orginally. One of them died I think. If memory is correct it was Jon's father and his uncle is trying to bring it back.
