New tight ends coach found? UPDATED

Posted by Bob Condotta

Rumors are out there --- notably, in the comments section of this blog --- that the Huskies may have settled on a new tight ends coach --- Alex Wood, currently on the staff of Arkansas but out of a job after the Cotton Bowl as he is not being retained by new Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino.

UPDATE --- However, Arkansas sports information director Kevin Trainor said tonight that Wood says "I have not accepted a job with anyone,'' so there is apparently no truth, at least yet, that Wood has been offered and accepted the job.

Still, Wood (here's his bio) makes a ton of sense as a potential candidate as he has a long history in college football, including serving as the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator under Dennis Erickson at Washington State in 1987-88 and then following Erickson to Miami, where he worked through 1993.

He also has spent five years working for Dennis Green in the NFL at Minnesota and Arizona --- UW coach Tyrone Willingham and Green are longtime friends as Willingham worked as an assistant for Green at Stanford.

Here's a story detailing how Wood's contract ends Dec. 31.

The Huskies are looking for a replacement for Bob Simmons, who was fired earlier this month. Simmons also handled special teams.
