The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Monday a.m. notes

A few links and notes to kick off the link …
— First, here’s my story today trying to assess where the coaching search is right now. As you can read, we have heard that there is no change in Jim Mora’s status and that it’s doubtful, at best, he ends up as coach at UW despite the fact that his name remains at the top of the rumor mill. Dawgman.com is reporting that there had been some new talks with Mora in recent weeks but that “some things have fallen apart” and that it’s now unlikely that Mora will end up as coach. My story also included the name of LSU’s Les Miles, which I have heard on a few occasions of late and makes some sense given his interest in the job in 2004 and his LSU connections. Our story today also talks about the possible impact of the coming state budget cuts.
— Times columnist Jerry Brewer looks at all the gossip surrounding Seattle coaches, including Mora, including the fact that Mora’s agent, Bob LaMonte, was at the Seahawks game Sunday, further fueling speculation. However, LaMonte is also Mike Holmgren’s agent and could have been there for any number of reasons.
— One opening appears about to be closed with Kansas State bringing back Bill Snyder.
— There’s a new team at the bottom of Ted Miller’s Pac-10 rankings.
Troy Calhoun of Air Force has also been mentioned at UW and refused to discuss it over the weekend.
Also, with the bye week this week, there won’t be a lot of regular football news out of Montlake. Tyrone Willingham is scheduled for his regular weekly press briefing today and Tuesday will be a regular day. But then the team will be off-limits the rest of the week. So we’ll have some more from UW later today. I will also try to get to some of your questions later.
