Washington Huskies defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox could be one of the hottest college football coaches on the market in the 2013 offseason. Anthony Cassino of UW Dawg Pound and our own Jack Follman elaborate.
Hasbeen the biggest factor to Washington's success this season, and how scared are you of losing him?
Anthony Cassino, UW Dawg Pound: I would say it's pretty inarguable that he's been the biggest factor, given that in their 3 wins against FCS opponents they never scored more than 21. If you think the previous defensive coordinator would have gotten those results, you weren't paying attention.
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: I would say yes. The fact that they are 4-4 and haven't scored more than 21 points against an FBS team is a huge testament to Wilcox. The defense has looked atrocious like they did in 2011 in almost half of their games though. I think that might be the silver lining though that keeps him from getting poached for at least a year or two.
