Video: Bob Diaco Dropped Some Latin On Reporters In His Awesome Opening Presser At UConn

I'm impressed.

Last night, it was announced that Bob Diaco would be the next head football coach at the University of Connecticut. The former defensive coordinator at Notre Dame had his opening press conference for UConn this afternoon, and man did he impress. He was engaging and extremely candid, immediately making friends with all of the local reporters in attendance. He talked about creating a spiral of winning, protecting players from energy vampires so they can fill the energy bucket, and establishing a championship-level team in Storrs.

He also decided to show off some serious language skills, and dropped a Latin phrase from St. Augustine on the crowd when talking about how to build a championship team. His translation: "With love and diligence, anything is possible."
