UConn football coach Randy Edsall announced three additions to his staff Monday — special teams coordinator Eddie Allen, offensive quality control coach Mike Moyseenko and offensive graduate assistant Ben Chapman.
Allen replaces Chris White, who left a couple weeks after his promotion to the job to become tight ends coach with the Detroit Lions. (White had worked at Syracuse with Lions coach Matt Patricia.)
Allen comes to UConn from Delaware, where he spent four years as special teams coordinator.
"Eddie's aggressive approach to special teams was exactly what I was looking for," Edsall said. "His teams have shown the ability to block kicks and be very fundamentally sound in the core four units involving special teams. He has delivered very good results in all the places he has worked."
Allen, a Somerville, N.J., native who played at University of New Haven (Class of 2003), worked with special teams at Rhode Island from 2008 to 2013, and he was on Greg Schiano's staff at Rutgers prior to that.
Moyseenko spent the past four years as wide receivers coach at Towson under Rob Ambrose, an assistant at UConn under Edsall from 2002 to 2008.
Chapman, a 2012 UConn graduate, will work with the Huskies’ offensive line. He spent last season as an assistant defensive line coach at Stonehill.
