Connecticut might be looking to the Big Ten to fill its head coaching position.
The Huskies have requested an interview with Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, according to a report on Sunday from CBSSports.com. The request was submitted before the regular season ended and the interview could take place this week.
Narduzzi ran perhaps the country’s best defense in 2013. His Spartan unit led the nation in total defense and rushing defense and was in the top three in scoring defense and pass efficiency defense. He’s emerged as a hot name for several head coaching positions, so he may get to pick his school or choose to stay with Michigan State.
Other candidates for the Connecticut vacancy reportedly include UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone, Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster and Ball State head coach Pete Lembo.
