A college football program made a significant change to its coaching staff on Friday. According to college football insider Brett McMurphy, UConn fired defensive coordinator Billy Crocker and defensive backs coach Curome Cox.

UConn finished the season with a 1-11 record in which they gave up at least 22 points in every game. Everyone saw this move coming, but the timing is curious.

Why wait so long? Especially when college football is in its third day of the Early Signing Period.

Regardless, the team has moved on.

The Huskies finished the year with three NCAA records for futility. After a 57-7 loss to Temple to end the year UConn set NCAA records for most yards against, most yards against per game and most points against per game - over 50 points per contest.

A change on the defensive staff was a necessity to avoid any embarrassment moving forward.
