STORRS, Conn. (AP) Frank Verducci, a former longtime NFL assistant, has been hired as the offensive coordinator at the University of Connecticut.
Verducci replaces Mike Cummings in a shuffling of UConn assistants. Cummings will stay on the staff and coach the offensive line.
Verducci was an offensive assistant at Iowa when UConn head coach Bob Diaco played linebacker there in the 1990s.
Verducci also will coach the running backs at UConn, which finished 2-10 last season while averaging just 15 1/2 points and 277 yards a game.
