                         === UConn fires Pasqualoni ===
 
 Storrs,  CT (Sports  Network) - Connecticut has fired head football coach Paul
 Pasqualoni after an 0-4 start to the 2013 season.
 
 Pasqualoni  and associate head coach George DeLeone were each dismissed in the
 wake of this past Saturday's humbling 41-12 loss at Buffalo.
 
 "I am making this change in our football coaching staff now as we approach the
 conference  season to  see an improved performance from our football program,"
 said UConn athletic director Warde Manuel.
 
 Pasqualoni was in his third year at UConn and had guided the Huskies to a mark
 of  10-18. Connecticut was just 5-7 in each of his first two years before this
 season's dismal start.
 
 The  Huskies opened the  2013 campaign with a 33-18 loss to Towson of the FCS,
 then  dropped a 32-21 decision to Maryland and former Husky coach Randy Edsall
 before  nearly pulling off an upset of a ranked Michigan squad. The Wolverines
 rallied for a 24-21 win in East Hartford.
 
 UConn is idle this week before hosting South Florida for its American Athletic
 Conference opener on Oct. 12.
 
 "I am disappointed in the record of our team thus far, but I am confident that
 our  coaching staff and student-athletes will continue to work hard to improve
 and  that  will be  reflected on  the field of  play as  we start our American
 Athletic Conference season," Manuel added.
 
 Pasqualoni's firing is the second in as many days for a major college football
 program, as Southern California dumped Lane Kiffin on Sunday morning.
 
 Prior  to joining the  Huskies, Pasqualoni was best known as the head coach at
 Syracuse  from 1991 through 2004. He compiled a 107-59-1 mark with the Orange,
 earning nine bowl berths in 14 years.
