Quick DC update

Nothing new as yet today on Washington’s search for a defensive coordinator, with reports out of Kansas that Bill Young may be staying put instead of heading to Miami.
Whether this means Young is out of the picture at UW is hard to say as Young’s comments don’t seem to necessarily rule out leaving eventually, just that he hasn’t as of yet.
As we also noted yesterday, former Husky defensive back Nigel Burton is moving from Oregon State to Nevada, where he will become the new defensive coordinator for the Wolf Pack — he had been simply the cornerbacks coach at OSU.
One thing this would seem to mean is that OSU defensive coordinator Mark Banker — who some UW fans have openly pined for — isn’t going anywhere. Hard to figure why Burton would make a move to Nevada if he thought there was an imminent chance to improve his place at OSU.
