UConn QBs #12 Casey Cochran and #14 Tim Boyle look on during the second quarter against the Stony Brook Seawolves at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT on September 6, 2014.
When the news broke on Monday about the fact that UConn Huskies QB Casey Cochran was done playing football due to concussions, head coach Bob Diaco had the following quote in the press release:
“A silver lining in this matter is that Casey has an interest in pursuing a career in coaching. We can now accelerate his development in that area as he transitions from a player role to a mentor role as he continues to serve the team.”
Besides their reactions to the news of Cochran retiring, everyone wanted to know what his role would actually be and what type of coach he would be.
Watch below as Diaco explains Cochran’s role and Chandler Whitmer, Deshon Foxx, Byron Jones, Graham Stewart and Marquise Vann give their opinions on what type of coach he’ll be.
