Fired UW defensive coordinator Kent Baer declined requests to speak to us on the day he was let go.
But he recently spoke to his hometown newspaper in Logan, Utah, a story you can find here.
Nothing too revelatory other than Baer's assertion that maybe he and Tyrone Willingham were simply together a little too long.
You could probably also dispute a little whether those three injuries "devestated'' UW's defense. The injuries in reference were to Jason Wells, Donald Butler and, I guess, to Dan Howell, though only Wells and Butler were fulltime starters forced out of the lineup for lengthy periods (Howell missed one game and then was hobbled a lot of the season.
Really no point in heaping more criticism on Baer for what happened, but I'm sure a lot of you could argue whether things would have really been that much different if those guys hadn't gotten hurt. Maybe, but UW had some issues even before those injuries occurred.
