Here's a story I just filed for our website:
The Washington Huskies may have found a new defensive coordinator.
Two sources told the Times that the job has been offered to Ed Donatell, who most recently was the defensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons under Jim Mora. He did not have a coaching job last season.
One source told the Times that Donatell is likely to take the job.
The Huskies have been searching for a coordinator to replace Kent Baer, who was fired last month after UW’s disappointing 4-9 season was punctuated by some defensive collapses.
Donatell has some history with UW having served as a graduate assistant for the Huskies in 1981 and 1982 under Don James.
He later served on the staff at Idaho under Keith Gilbertson from 1986-88.
He worked in the NFL from 1990-2006 as a defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator with the Jets, Chiefs, Broncos, Packers and Falcons.
