Pasqualoni Back In The Big East

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordiantor Paul Pasqualoni will be returning to the Big East to be the head coach at Connecticut. Pasqualoni was formerly the head coach at Syracuse from 1990-2004 (could be wrong) compiling a 107-59-1 record in 14 years at the 'Cuse. He was there during the Marvin Graves & Donovan McNabb years. During that time the Orange won or shared 4 Big East titles and were in nine bowl games.

He beat out former University of Miami offensive coordinator Mark Whipple for the job.

Pasqualoni's track record in the Big East should help him in recruiting, since he brought in some good talent to Syracuse while he manned the sidelines in upstate New York. He brought the aforementioned McNabb and Graves in along with Qadry Ismail among others. The Orange were actually nationally relevant back then. UConn is hoping he can do the same for their program and build upon what Randy Edsall started and left behind.
