Preview: UW starts new year with new defensive staff

Jan 5, 2012

Being part of the highest-scoring bowl game in history was hardly a distinction for University of Washington defensive coordinator Nick Holt. 

The 67-56 loss to Baylor in the Alamo Bowl was the last in a series of defensive flops that cost him his job.

The 2012 Pac-12 football schedule has just come out. It includes a lot of tough games for the Huskies, including a match-up with No. 1 LSU. How will the new defensive coaching staff meet the challenge?

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel weighs in on the changes in the UW football program tomorrow morning at 5:35 and 7:35 on 88.5 KPLU. Check back here for a blog of our conversation.
