Update at UConn
Desmond Conner covers UConn football for the Hartford Courant. He covers the program year round, attends the games, plenty of practices and frequently does inside pieces on the coaches and the administration. In short, he should have a good ear for what is going on with regards to the search.
Earlier today Desmond rifled off a few tweets (seemingly in response to some media reports) about the status of the search and what he's hearing locally. Without further adieu... (but with the disclaimer that the info from Desmond is his info, our inserts are in one tweet and at the bottom)

Ron Prince, Jeff Tedford, Lane Kiffin, Turner Gill, all no-gos for #UConn head coach— Desmond Conner (@desmondconner) November 26, 2013
Also hearing there could be as many as 10 candidates interviewed for #UConn Football head coaching position but realistically 6-7...— Desmond Conner (@desmondconner) November 26, 2013
I heard Houston Nutt a no-go for #UConnFootball head coach— Desmond Conner (@desmondconner) November 26, 2013
For what it's worth, sources tell us that Ambrose is unlikely. Do have to admit seeing the tweet about Mullen being in play made us chuckle a bit. As always, we'll keep you posted.
