HARTFORD, Conn. — A daughter of Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma said Wednesday she's been hired by The Hartford Courant to help cover the six-time national championship team.

Alysa Auriemma told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she'll regularly give an insider's viewpoint about her father and the team beginning this fall. She says the articles will be published on her blog and linked to the Courant.

She says The Courant is paying her "a pretty good amount per article" but wouldn't say how much she's being paid.

The 23-year-old, a graduate of UConn, says she'll take readers behind the scenes, but won't be writing anything controversial about her father's team.

The Courant did not return telephone calls.
