More on Walker

As I type this, Rick Neuheisel and DeWayne Walker are undergoing a teleconference announcing that Walker is staying at UCLA as defensive coordinator.
Neuheisel called it “a great hire” and said “obvioulsy we are elated” that Walker has decided to stay.
In what might be the most intriguing quote of the night, Walker acknowledged that the Huskies not only wanted to hire him but UCLA defensive line coach Todd Howard and linebackers coach Chuck Bullough.
“University of Washington and Coach (Tyrone) Willingham did a great job trying to recruit not only myself but also Todd and Chuck,” Walker said. “But I’m just happy that it worked out for all of us.”
This obviously means the Huskies had made the decision to make major changes on the defensive staff, potentially getting rid of longtime defensive line coach Randy Hart and linebackers coach Chris Tormey.
Walker said he stayed because he felt UCLA was the place he was supposed to be and he felt he had some “unfinished business” with the Bruins.
