More on Murchison, other notes

We have updated our Jordan Murchison story on-line with some of the latest information, but I will also present it here.
Murchison was arrested yesterday for failing to appear for an arraignment hearing in July in connection with a second-degree felony assault in March. He was released this morning from King County Jail after posting bond on $10,000 bail. The arraignment hearing will be rescheduled.
Murchison also is facing three misdemeanor counts — two assault and one harassment — on a domestic violence incident from June. He is scheduled for a court date on that case on Sept. 24 in Seattle Municipal Court.
So to sum up, Murchison is facing two court dates on charges stemming from two separate incidents.
UW coach Tyrone Willingham will meet the media around noon or so at which time he may address Murchison’s status with the team.
MORE ON HAWKS: As you might imagine, the news on Murchison coming late yesterday resulted in some hasty rewriting of my story for today — I had a bunch of other stuff all ready to go. Included in that was the views of UW players about watching the Seahawks practice, some of which made it into the paper anyway.
But as sometimes happens when stuff breaks later, some of that was cut out.
Part of what was omitted was the rest of the final quote from Roy Lewis, which if you just read what made it into the paper might sound like a negative comparison between UW’s practices and those of the Seahawks. But I don’t think that’s what he meant, as the rest of the quote would have indicated.
Here’s how the entire quote was originally presented:
“It just looked a lot more organized, clean,” he said. “They hardly made any mental mistakes. You didn’t hear a lot of coaches yelling because they weren’t making mistakes. They were just out there playing football.”
