Then here's your chance if you think fulfill any of the qualifications listed in this job description here.
As I wrote today, the school is starting to get a little more serious about its search for a new athletic director, having hired the firm Parker Executive Search to help in the process. Here's the home page for Parker as well as a link to a listing of all the jobs it is currently advertising, including UW's.
I couldn't find out exactly how much UW is paying Parker, but LSU reportedly paid the firm $75,000 when it helped in both the search for a new AD and a new basketball coach so I would imagine the fee is about the same, if not exactly the same, for Washington.
Oregon State also paid Parker $75,000 for its help in that school's search for a new basketball coach, a process that didn't earn any raves in this column here from John Canzano.
As I wrote today, schools like to use the firms largely to retain confidentiality and conduct background checks. Acting AD Scott Woodward has yet to declare his official candidacy and what he decides to do will go a long way toward determining where the search heads. If he says he wants it, he'd be the leader in the clubhouse by a Tiger Woodsian margin. If not, the school will obviously have to look elsewhere.
