Connecticut changed football coaches this week. Next week it may be changing quarterbacks.
Connecticut got a boost in confidence on Saturday night. Not enough, however, to prevent the school’s worst start in a dozen years. The Huskies couldn’t hold a 14-point second-half lead and lost to No. 15 Michigan 24-21, falling to 0-3 for the first time since 2001.
C.J. Brown ran for 122 yards and a touchdown and threw for 277 yards and another score on Saturday night as Maryland beat UConn 32-21, giving Randy Edsall a win over the team he coached for a dozen seasons.
Chandler Whitmer threw for 219 yards and Connecticut scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams to beat Massachusetts 37-0 Thursday night, spoiling the Minutemen’s debut as a bowl subdivision program.
Connecticut opens preseason practice Friday with a junior-college transfer as the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart.
