Yale Pro Day and more
LB Will Caughan, OLB/S Charles Cook and WR Grant Wallace, along with former WR Chris Smith will participate, along with players from other Connecticut schools (see complete list at bottom of this post).
A few NFL scouts are expected to attend.
UPDATE: Deon Randall has decided not to pursue football and accepted a job at Imperial Capital, an investment bank in Los Angeles.
Tyler Varga, the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year, will have his Pro Day on March 31 at Tolland’s Star Hill Family Athletic Center. Scouts from most, if not all, NFL teams are expected to be in attendance.
Steve Vashel is expected to take over as defensive coordinator this upcoming season. Vashel just finished his third season as defensive backs coach for the Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Yale made it official earlier this month and named Jordan Stevens as its new defensive line coach. Stevens previously served as Maine's defensive line coach.
Portal 31 had reported Sean McGowan would take over as defensive coordinator. That is not the case, however. He will serve as linebackers coach. McGowan, a Cheshire native, coached two seasons at Boston College as the team's special teams coordinator and SAM linebackers coach.
The coaching moves come after the resignations of defensive coordinator Rick Flanders and defensive line coach Carlton Hall.
Just a reminder, spring practice for the Bulldogs begins Wednesday and will finish up with the annual Blue-White scrimmage on April 18. Practices are open to the public. I will update with a complete practice schedule soon.
