That's what Brian Dohn of the LA Daily News says is being rumored as the Huskies try to court DeWayne Walker, Bruins' defensive coordinator.
If so, he'd be one of the few --- if not the first --- UW assistant in recent times to get a multi-year deal.
As has been reported earlier, former UW defensive coordinator Kent Baer made basically $224,000 a year, the same amount as OC Tim Lappano. Walker made $360,000 this year at UCLA, so if the Huskies are talking about paying him more, that means they could be on the verge of just about doubling the pay for a DC. Under Tyrone Willingham, the coordinators have always gotten the same pay, so there could be implications here for Lappano, as well.
All of this is moot, of course, should Walker get the head coaching job at UCLA
For all you'd want to know about Walker, here's a web site originated by some UCLA fans who want him to get the head coaching job there.
