A running backs coach candidate

A reader floated the name of UCLA assistant Dino Babers as Washington’s new running backs coach the other day.
And rumblings are that Babers would indeed be interested — he may need a job as UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell was recently fired, though his staff remains in place through the team’s game in the Las Vegas Bowl against BYU. Word is that most of the UCLA assistants are waiting to see what happens with the new coach there before making any decisions about moving on.
As you can see from his bio, Babers has a long history in the Pac-10 working the last four years at UCLA and six at Arizona.
UW needs a new running backs coach to replace Trent Miles, who left to become head coach at Indiana State.
There have yet to be any other changes to UW’s staff for next season, with all other current assistants said to be handling recruiting duties, though rumblings persist that some changes may be in the offing, particulatly on the defensive side.
