The Huskies welcome eight new assistants along with returning offensive line coach Mike Foley
Josh Reardon, who was most recently a graduate assistant coach at Notre Dame for the past two seasons, is in his first year as an assistant coach in 2014 and will have position responsibility with the cornerbacks. He will also serve as the Co-Special Teams Coordinator. Reardon also had strong Northeast ties as he coached at Holy Cross in 2011 and Sacred Heart from 2008-10.
At Notre Dame, Reardon assisted new UConn head coach Bob Diaco and worked with the Irish inside and outside linebackers. In 2011, Reardon was outside linebackers coach at Holy Cross and was part of a defensive coaching staff that helped hold opponents to only 3.9 yards per carry.
Reardon spent three seasons at Sacred Heart, coaching the defensive line in 2008, the secondary in 2009 and serving as defensive coordinator and secondary coach in 2010.
Reardon's first job was as a graduate assistant at Central Michigan from 2006-07. He assisted with coaching the defensive line and inside linebackers. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was the Chippewas head coach in 2006.
In Reardon's first season as graduate assistant, Central Michigan won the Mid-American Conference and the Motor City Bowl en route to a 10-4 season. Reardon was a student assistant in 2005 for Central Michigan's football team and again worked with Diaco.
A 2006 graduate of Central Michigan, Reardon was on the Chippewas football team from 2001-04. He earned his bachelor's degree in physical education with a minor in history. He is a native of Sturgis, Mich.
