Earlier this morning, it was announced by UConn that it’d be firing head football coach Paul Pasqualoni (and offensive line coach George DeLeone) following the squad’s first 0-4 start since the early 1990s. Huskies fans, many who have been calling for the move since the end of last season, have been cheering the decision. Apparently some of Pasqualoni’s players are as well. Jory Johnson started at linebacker for the Huskies every game in both 2011 and 2012. He made it clear how he felt about Coach P’s firing this morning: Finally “@hartfordcourant: BREAKING: UConn has fired football coach Paul Pasqualoni. Huskies are off to an 0-4 start this season” — JUICE (@JoryJohnson28) September 30, 2013 Apparently Johnson isn’t the only one who feels this way. Check out what The Daily Campus’ Tim Fontenault just tweeted out regarding the current players: A group of #UConn football players is in the Union right now. They don’t look like a group of guys whose coach just got fired. Look elated. — Tim Fontenault (@Tim_Fontenault) September 30, 2013 I’m sure we’ll see more fallout as the day goes on. We’ll keep you updated.
