After compiling an impressive 11 and 29 record over the last three seasons, the University of Connecticut in a bold and controversial move fired their head football coach Bob Diaco Wednesday.
The decision to fire a coach with only three wins this year and a six game losing streak at the end of the season left many fans open mouthed. “Wow! I am completely shocked,” remarked Lidia Merkel. “This is a dark hour. I may need to take a leave of absence from my job.”
Pedro Tavares was caught off guard and disappointed because the team showed signs of improving, “They actually scored points in the last game so things were looking up.”
“My God is nothing sacred anymore?” asked Mitchell Luby when he heard the announcement on WTIC (1080 AM). “We had the worse offense in the nation and lost the last six games of the season by a combined score of 130-16. What kind of monster fires a guy with numbers like that?”
