Monday night notes — Sporting News says UW’s new staff

Washington may have created some animosity among some of its Pac-12 brethren with the way it put its new coaching staff together.

But the payoff was evident in the late recruiting rush that allowed UW’s Class to move into the Top-20 range in all polls. And tonight The Sporting News says that UW has the best “new coaching staff” in college football. Here’s the link and as you can see, two other Pac-12 schools — UCLA and Arizona are numbers two and three. That speaks to the overall aggressiveness of Pac-12 schools in using their new-found TV money to upgrade the sport that’s creating all that TV money in the first place.
