Video: Next Man In To Replace UConn Football TE Tommy Myers

All along his tenure at UConn, head football coach Bob Diaco has talked about the next man in philosophy. By this he means, if you’re a backup, you’re expected to come in an do your job.

With the loss of Tommy Myers at tight end, others will now be called upon to do what Myers did. And it won’t be easy as he did just about everything on offense except pass the ball.

Chris Lee has replaced him on the depth chart but is just a true freshman. He’ll play but guys like Max DeLorenzo and last week’s hero, Garrett Anderson, will have to step up.

During his Tuesday press conference, Diaco talked about how hard it will be to replicate what Myers did.
