A press conference has been called for 3 p.m. today to announce Washington's new defensive coordinator, Nick Holt.
Holt has been defensive coordinator at USC the last three years.
UW coach Steve Sarkisian said last night he was in talks with Holt and hoped to know something one way or the other soon. Sounds like they got it done and Holt's the guy.
Here is Holt's bio from the USC web site. As you can see, he has significant Northwest experience from his days at Idaho. He worked there for a few years with Chris Tormey, who had been on Washington's staff since 2004. Tormey had been told he was being let go but is thought willing to come back to UW so we'll see if Holt's naming as DC brings Tormey back into the fold. Tormey was head coach at Idaho from 1995-98 during a time when Holt was defensive coordinator.
For those who want to watch it, a live video stream will be available on GoHuskies.com. We'll have full coverage here, as well.
