UConn football coach Jim Mora has hired Michelle “Mickey” Grace as an offensive analyst. Grace, 29, will work with wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator John Allen.
“Mickey has a real intellect about her, an ability to see the game in a particular way, which really impressed me,” Mora says. “But more than anything with Mickey, it was just her personality that drew me to her — woman, man, it doesn’t matter, it was just the fact that she has such an engaging personality. She’s got toughness, she’s got empathy. She’s taught me a ton already — about how things are with this generation, how to communicate with them, the ways they are thinking. She’s really an impressive person.”
