UConn’s Scott Lakatos a candidate for DB coach

January 18, 2010

It has been reported that Connecticut secondary coach Scott Lakatos interviewed with UGA on Saturday. Todd Grantham and Mark Richt are still working to fill out the defensive staff, and Lakatos looks to be one potential assistant they’re looking at.

Quick bio on him if you’re interested –

Basically he’s a legit yankee. He’s spent his coaching career in the Northeast (beginning in 1988), serving as a secondary coach for the majority  of the time, but he’s also coached linebackers, special teams and served as a defensive coordinator twice (New Haven and Maine). His stops include Western Connecticut, Boston University, Syracuse, New Haven, Maine, Rutgers and Connecticut. The pass D at UConn since he has been there has been pretty good. From 2003-2008, UConn has ranked 35th, 20th, 4th, 28th, 14th and 7th in pass defense. In 2009, it ranked 85th in pass D, but the Huskies did lose 4 starters on defense to the NFL, and that program isn’t exactly stocked with talent waiting in the wings. Lakatos can be credited with coaching up Darius Butler from a 2-star rated recruit to the 41st overall selection in the 09′ NFL Draft (Patriots).

Maybe he could help bring in some more of that Knowshon Moreno yankee-talent. I just have one condition for his acceptance to our great Southern institution, if it turns out CTG and CMR want to bring him here. He must renounce the New York Yankees, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman and…. Pepsi.

UPDATE: It’s official, Lakatos has been hired.

    I think its hysterical that all of us Southerners Look at Pepsi as a Yankee drink, even though it is a Southern Company

      A Southern company? True, the guy who invented it was from North Carolina, but Pepsi Co. was founded in Chicago and is currently headquartered in New York.
