HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut football coach Paul Pasqualoni has been fired with the team off to an 0-4 start.

Athletic director Warde Manuel made the announcement Monday, two days after the Huskies lost 41-12 at Buffalo. This was Pasqualoni’s third season with the team. He finishes with a 10-18 record at UConn.

An interim coach is to be announced at an afternoon news conference.

Manuel said he made the move now, looking for improvement before UConn opens its American Athletic Conference schedule. The Huskies have a bye week before hosting South Florida on Oct. 12.

Offensive line coach George DeLeone also was fired.
