On Monday afternoon, UConn football announced the hiring of three assistant coaches. Special teams coordinator Eddie Allen headlines the list, joining the Huskies from Delaware, where held the same position since 2014.

“Eddie’s aggressive approach to special teams was exactly what I was looking for in our special teams coordinator,” Edsall said in a statement.

The Blue Hens had two-time all-Colonial Athletic Association punter and 2014 Third Team All-American Eric Anderson as well as 2017 All-CAA Third Team punter Nick Pritchard, who led the team to a tie for the top in the conference in net punting yards (38.8 yards/punt). He also played quarterback for four years for the University of New Haven, graduating in 2003.

The other two new hires are offensive assistants, including Mike Moyseenko as offensive quality control coach. Previously, he was a member of Towson’s staff as the wide receiver coach since 2014 after a year as the offensive quality control coach there.

Finally, the Huskies have a graduate assistant in 2012 UConn graduate Ben Chapman. In 2017 he was with Division III Stonehill College as an assistant defensive line coach and has also spent time at Stonington High School. While attending UConn, he was a member of the scout team and served as a recruiting assistant.

It is unclear whether UConn will be making any other additions, but currently, there is no coach listed as quarterbacks coach and while Moyseenko is an offensive QC coach, there is no defensive counterpart.
