Monday night links — Utah’s DC gets a big raise, did UW help?

An interesting item today from the Salt Lake Tribune on the new contract the Utes gave defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake.

As noted in the story, Sitake got a new contract that will pay him $500,000 per year for two-and-a-half years.

The contract officially began Jan. 1, the day before UW announced the hiring of Justin Wilcox as its new defensive coordinator. No doubt, that’s just a normal start date for a new contract.

But considering that Sitake’s name was mentioned as a potentially serious candidate for the Huskies, the timing of his new deal may be more than coincidental. Whether or not UW ever talked to Sitake — or merely had him on the list if the search had needed to go on longer — the Utes obviously made an aggressive move to keep Sitake in the fold a while.

And like a lot of others made around the Pac-12 in the past few months, it’s the kind you figure might not have been made without the promise of the money coming from the conference’s new TV deal.
