UConn Athletics Unveils New Logo Featuring Redesigned, More Aggressive Husky (Photo)


New conference, new look for UConn athletics.

On Thursday, the University of Connecticut revealed its new take on the Husky Dog logo. The school’s athletic department has worked with Nike on new logos, wordmarks and uniforms for more than a year now. The new look was applauded by both men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie and women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma.

“We are proud to share with everyone the new visual identity of UConn Athletics, which includes a new Husky Dog logo,” UConn Director of Athletics Warde Manuel said in a press release.  “Our student-athletes and coaches strongly believe that the new Husky dog logo boldly reflects values such as Pride, Loyalty, Strength, Determination and Athleticism.  They are all very excited to wear it into competition and to see it displayed prominently in our facilities.”
