UConn Huskies football coach Paul Pasqualoni has made two additions to his staff adding two graduate assistants, Jordan Orlovsky and Michael Digman.

Here's the release from UConn:

STORRS, Conn. (Jan. 30, 2012) – Jordan Orlovsky, a 2009 graduate of Miami (Fla.), and Michael Digman, a 2007 Missouri graduate, have been named graduate assistant football coaches at the University of Connecticut for the 2012 season.

Digman, who will work with the offense, was the running backs and tight ends coach at Blinn College (Brenham, Texas) during the 2010 season. He was also the offensive graduate assistant at Buffalo (2010) and Austin Peay (2008-09). Digman was a student assistant coach at Missouri, working with the quarterbacks, in 2006.

Most recently, Digman was an offensive assistant coach at Fort Pierce Central High School, in Fort Pierce, Fla. He also coached wide receivers and kickers at Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Ark., in 2007 and 2008.

Digman played his college football at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Ark., as a quarterback. He is also a graduate of Arkadelphia High School.
