STORRS — The familiar sounds of whistles and shoulder pads colliding, the sideline views of a perfectly threaded pass and blurry shirts whizzing past brought a breath of fresh air to Jim Mora in UConn Football’s first fall practice session on Friday.
“I hadn’t coached on a soccer field since November 18, 2017, when we played USC at the Coliseum, and the next morning I was fired,” Mora said of coaching UCLA five years ago. “I know exactly how long it’s been since I’ve had to come out and prepare for a game. It’s amazing. I feel it’s what I was built for.”
