The Washington Huskies return to the practice field today after another little break — and they’ll do so down one coach after the departure yesterday of cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin.
UW will hit the field at 3 p.m. today to begin in earnest its preparation for the Dec. 29 Alamo Bowl against Baylor.
This will be the sixth of UW’s 15 allowed practices for the bowl game. The five so far have been largely devoted to the younger players and basic fundamentals, etc. Now the Huskies will start to seriously gameplan for the Bears, basically holding two five-day gameweek sets of practice leading into the game — today through Monday, and then, after one last little break, Dec. 24-28. Today’s practice will basically resemble a usual Monday, with the Huskies then proceeding in that order of a usual game week.
