UConn starting quarterback Casey Cochran retires due to concussions
Cochran was concussed in the Huskies' season opener against BYU. According to John F. Silver of SNY, it was the first concussion Cochran suffered in a game, but he had a history of sustaining concussions during training.
UConn head coach Bob Diaco said in a statement that Cochran will pursue a career in coaching.
Redshirt senior Chandler Whitmer started in place of Cochran in Saturday's win over Stony Brook. He completed 12 of 27 passes for 142 yards with a touchdown. Whitmer started all 12 games for the Huskies in 2012, leading them to a 5-7 record.
Sophomore Tim Boyle is the only other scholarship quarterback eligible to play this season.
