UConn TE Sean McQuillan leaves football team

UConn head coach Bob Diaco announced to reporters on Friday that tight end Sean McQuillan has graduated and moved on from the football team and the univeristy.

According to the Harford Courant, McQuillan was appealing disciplinary action taken by the university, after he was charged with assault for fighting with his roommate. McQuillan would have more than likely been a captain in the 2015 season.

McQuillan caught 41 passes for 354 yards and two touchdowns in his career.

Diaco says that it would’ve been an advantage to have McQuillan’s experience, but that they have three or four true freshmen who are “accomplished tight end”.

Since McQuillan has already graduated from UConn, he is eligible to play this year if he moves to another FBS program if he is exonerated of his felony charge.

The next step in the judicial process is scheduled for sometime in July.
