The University of Connecticut has hired former Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco as their head coach. When the Syracuse job opened up last year I posted on this site about how I thought Diaco would be a great choice for SU. Diaco has experience recruiting the Northeast (see Ishaq Williams for example), is young, charismatic and a nationally known name. Scott Shafer has done an admirable job his first year, really as best as could have been expecting under the circumstances, but I expect UConn to improve dramatically over the next few seasons. Don't be surprised if we begin to lose some recruits to UConn, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
