UConn Fires Football Coaches - Will Announce Interim Coach Today

I guess UConn's Athletic Director, Warde Manual,  has decided it's time for something new.  Paul Pasqualoni (UConn football coach), George DeLeone (Associate head coach and offensive line head coach) both were kicked to the curb in a press release this morning.
"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," UConn athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement. "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."
Although no interim coach has been named, the school will be holding a press conference today at 4 PM, when they will announce either Offensive Coordinator T.J. Weist, Defensive Coordinator Hank Hughes, or Tight Ends Coach, Mike Foley to assume the role (sources say).
Pasqualoni's record of 10-18 since taking over the team has not been the best, but he certainly doesn't walk away empty handed.  In fact, he will received a $750k payment based on his employment contract with UConn. 
The Huskies are currently ranked at the bottom in almost every offensive category nationally, so maybe it's time for something new.
