I'm told Ed Donatell is on campus today meeting with UW coaches and other school officials. Could mean an announcement as soon as tomorrow, since word is it won't be coming today.
One thing that makes him attractive is his past experience at UW, working as a graduate assistant with the defense in 1981 and 1982. UW went to the Rose Bowl in 1981, beating Iowa 28-0, and went 10-2 in 1982, beating Maryland in the Aloha Bowl.
Don James was the coach of those teams and when I talked with him today he hadn't heard that Donatell is likely to be the new DC but said he was happy with the news.
''He was a good young coach,'' James said. ''He was one of those guys I thought definitely had a career in coaching and was going to make it. He was a hard worker and smart. I'm pleased he would have that opportunity.''
