Video: UConn Football Let Tyler Matakevich Leave The State

Believe it or not, Temple Owls LB Tyler Matakevich was recruited by the UConn Huskies. But it wasn’t the football team, it was the baseball program.

You can’t blame UConn football head coach Bob Diaco for that one. It came under the regime of Paul Pasqualoni, who seemingly had the ins of keeping a good player like Matakevich in the state.

Instead, he got away to Temple and has been wreaking havoc on teams including UConn football.

On Tuesday, Diaco talked about Matakevich and gave a quick preview of the Temple offense and defense.
