I can't confirm yet that Ed Donatell will become UW's new defensive coordinator.
But indications are strong there that he could be the one..
"I could definitely see that,'' someone who could know told me last night.
UPDATE --- I was told by someone this morning that Donatell has been offered the job and that he is likely to take it. But there is no official word yet from the school.
As noted yesterday, Donatell spent the 1981 and 1982 seasons at UW as a graduate assistant under Don James.
He later worked for three years under Keith Gilbertson at Idaho.
From 1995 through 2006 he was in the NFL with the Jets, Chiefs, Broncos, Packers and Falcons as a defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator. His last stop was with the Falcons where he was DC for Jim Mora. He did not have a job last season.
