Who knows who Washington will choose as its next football coach, but two names with close Husky ties are being mentioned and drawing a lot of interest.
One is Jim Mora, the former Washington player who coached the Seahawks and now is having success at UCLA.
The other is Gary Pinkel, the former UW offensive coordinator under Don James who has Missouri riding high in the SEC.
Each has allure as a Washington candidate. Pinkel, 61, has the James ties and great success rebuilding programs at Toledo and Missouri. Mora, 52, has been mentioned again and again as a UW candidate, though the timing never seemed right.
So who would you choose?
