Entrance exam: Grading the college football coaching hires

Time -- and wins and losses -- will ultimately tell if the hires during this coaching cycle made the dean's list, but it's not too early to review how the new 21 head coaches are doing so far.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Senior Bowl: Safety to watch today in full pads -- Obi Melifonwu (UConn). 6-foot-4, 219 pounds. Has the frame of a nickel linebacker. Movement skills. Can track the ball too. Rare athleticism given his size at the position. Opportunity today to impress pro scouts during inside run period and team drills. Get downhill and hit.

Nebraska has made official the hire of former UConn coach Bob Diaco as defensive coordinator, replacing Mark Banker, whose firing was announced on Wednesday. "When we began looking for a new defensive coordinator, Bob Diaco quickly rose to the top of the list," Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. Diaco, an Iowa graduate, won the Broyles Award in 2012 as the nation's top assistant coach while coordinating the Notre Dame defense.

Auburn OC Lashlee leaving SEC for UConn gig

Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee is heading to the AAC, where he will step into the same role at UConn under new head coach Randy Edsall.

Greg Ostendorf ESPN Staff Writer 

Rhett Lashlee has been Gus Malzahn's OC all five seasons that Malzahn has been a college coach. But with Lashlee taking the same position at UConn, the marriage is over. "This is a great opportunity for Rhett to implement and run his own offense," Malzahn said. "This is another step towards his goal to become a head coach."
