Jim Mora is continuing to assemble his inaugural UConn Huskies coaching staff in Mora’s return as a collegiate head coach, and he’s making a key move for a top off-the-field role.
Sources tell FootballScoop that Mora is tabbing Andrew Goodman for his Director of Football Operations role atop the Huskies’ program.
Mora was hired in early November to revive a UConn program that had nosedived under Randy Edsall.
In Goodman, Mora is poised to add a former walk-on player at Penn State University who has deep ties in the region.
Most recently, Goodman has served as the DFO at Brown University.
Additionally Goodman, a finalist earlier this year for a scouting position with the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, previously served in a recruiting coordinator operations role for James Franklin at Goodman’s alma mater, Penn State.
Goodman also spent a pair of seasons in a player personnel intern role for the Buffalo Bills.
He just completed his third season in the top operations role at Brown.
