When the UConn Football head coach Bob Diaco ran his first spring practice in 2014, he was a little green as far as what needed to be done.

It’s not that he didn’t know what he was doing since he’d been through many a spring practice as an assistant coach, it’s that he had never been a head coach and responsible for the entire practice. It took some time for the team to get to what Diaco expected but they did it.

So when the UConn Huskies held their first spring practice in 2015 last Saturday., it was a totally different feeling. The players knew what was coming from Diaco as far as what was expected of them and vice versa.

Watch and/or listen below as Diaco talks about the differences.
