While coach Chris Ash acknowledged Giovanni Rescigno as the incumbent, he said the spot would need to be earned.

Emails and letters provided to the Hartford Courant (http://cour.at/2nfJHjZ ) show an advisory board to the Office of State Ethics is questioning whether it was permissible for the elder Edsall to negotiate a job for his son Corey under the state ethics code.
