Walker staying at UCLA

Posted by Bob Condotta

Official word has just come down from UCLA that defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker is staying at UCLA.

New UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel is holding a teleconference in just a few minutes to make the official announcement.

This is obviously a big hit for UW as the Huskies made a very serious effort to get Walker to replace Kent Baer. Another candidate, Ron English, was hired at Louisville yesterday, so it's uncertain where the Huskies go now. One option is promoting LB coach Chris Tormey, who was UW's defensive coordinator in 1994.

It's thought that the turning point for Walker staying at UCLA came when Neuheisel agreed to allow Walker to keep his current defensive staff at UCLA intact. UCLA's official release announces that defensive line coach Todd Howard and linebackers coach Chuck Bullough are staying at UCLA. They were the two defensive assistants who came to UCLA with Walker and were rumored to be coming to UW if Walker had moved north.

I'll have more later.
