Lots of rumors flying about UW's vacant defensive coordinator position, but official word from the school is that no announcement is forthcoming today, with no indications when or if one may arrive.
We earlier explored the Jon Tenuta rumors when no sooner had a new name surfaced on this board and others, that of former Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Ed Donatell.
Donatell was apparently out of coaching last fall after being let go along with the rest of the Falcons' staff following the 2006 season (when the head coach was Jim Mora). He apparently tried to get on with the Vikings this season but wasn't hired.
While Donatell's most recent experience is in the NFL, he also has a lengthy college resume, having actually worked the 1981-82 seasons at UW as a graduate assistant under Don James and later serving as the defensive coordinator at Idaho when Keith Gilbertson was the head coach. So he has some ties to old Huskies and will already know his way around a bit if he's the one.
