A little more on DC search

Very little, actually.
I didn’t have a story in the paper today (in part for some space issues) but also because UW coach Tyrone Willingham informed media who asked, through a spokesman, that he will have nothing to say about the search until it is completed, refusing all interview requests until then.
Willingham is also set for a fairly busy few days in which he’ll have to juggle some other activities along with the search.
The Huskies are scheduled to have four recruits in town this weekend, including three players who have already committed — RB Terrance Dailey, cornerback Anthony Gobern and LB Bradly Roussel — as well as LB Josh Kaddu of Vacaville, Calif. (this all according to Scout.com).
Then Willingham will take off for the American Football Coaches Association Convention Sunday-Wednesday in Anaheim. As I’ve mentioned before here, Willingham is scheduled to become president of AFCA for 2008 (he was first vice president this year as you can see in this link here).
There will be a lot of other coaches there, as well, so surely Willingham will be able to talk to whomever he might want during his time in Anaheim.
— Some of you have asked about Duane Akina, a former UW player who has been the co-defensive coordinator at Texas. Despite the shakeup there, this story in the Dallas Morning News today makes it sound as if Akina is staying put. The story says Texas is pursuing Auburn’s Will Muschamp and that if he gets the job Akina will remain a co-coordinator but will give up play-calling duties while also coaching the secondary.
Dino Babers, thought a possible candidate for the UW running backs job, is scheduled to interview with Rick Neuheisel today about staying on the staff at UCLA. So his future could be a lot more clear in the next few days.
