MIAMI (Miami Herald) - University of Connecticut defensive coordinator Todd Orlando has officially accepted the same job with the FIU Golden Panthers.
Here are Mario's thoughts on his new assistant:
"If you look at the history of the last five years of UConn football, they've done some amazing things. They faced a lot of spread offense, including Cincy and West Virginia, and had great success. He's called a lot of big games, and just coming off a BCS bowl game. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge and he's a great teacher."
