Just a quick note to point out there is nothing official yet on DeWayne Walker, and I don't see anything else out there that really updates the situation from last night.
I did want to point out that this story from the Orange County Register mentions the three defensive assistants Walker may bring with him to UW if he gets the job with the Huskies --- defensive line coach Todd Howard, linebackers coach Chuck Bullough and maybe safeties coach Gary DeLoach, though speculation seems to be that would be more unlikely.
Here are bios for Howard --- who as you can see, played linebacker in the NFL for a couple of years and has coached at both the NFL and college levels; and Bullough --- who as you can see, coached with the Bears for five years before coming to UCLA. Both came to UCLA before the 2006 season along with Walker.
Again, none of this is official and the talk about Walker wanting to bring a few assistants with him is speculation at this point, but indications are strong that bringing Walker to UW could mean a reshaping of the Husky defensive staff, as well.
UPDATE 2:15 --- The LA Daily News blog states that a UCLA official spoke with Walker and he is still undecided about his future. Read it here.
