STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut changed football coaches this week. Next week it may be changing quarterbacks.

Interim coach T.J. Weist says he is open to taking the red shirt off highly touted freshman Tim Boyle and starting him over Chandler Whitmer when the Huskies play South Florida (0-4) on Oct. 12.

Whitmer, a junior, has completed 71 of 129 passes for 896 yards, with five touchdowns and six interceptions. But he has led an offense that ranks 119th out of 123 bowl subdivision programs and, more importantly, is 0-4.

Calls for a change began before this week's firing of Paul Pasqualoni. And the former coach, speaking to reporters on Monday night, said the switch to the 6-foot-4 Boyle already was in the works. He says the staff just wanted to give him some more practice time before putting him on the field.

UConn is off this week. Weist says he'll be using that time to evaluate all his personnel and determine what other changes may be needed.
