D-Day is here. Although it may not become "official" (for all you press conference junkies) signs are becoming more than concrete. Meriones has already blogged about the process piece in the LA Times. I thought the news on Peterson is welcoming. But I am not getting my hopes up. I think there is still a lot of hurdles DG will have to overcoming to get Peterson into Westwood. As for the Doofus, DG is meeting with the loser this am:
Walker's potential involvement with Washington State could hamper his ability, or willingness, to serve as UCLA's interim coach. Walker's representative was contacted by Washington State last week.
If former Wazzu coach Mike Price does not leave Texas-El Paso and return to Wazzu, Walker could have a shot at the job, making it difficult for him to serve as UCLA's interim coach and prepare for a bowl game during a time he could be recruiting for another program.
Uhm, I will take Coach K over some self promoting, selfish SOB who is only there to push his own agenda any day. The more I read about how Walker, the more I get disgusted with him as an individual. I really don’t want him around Westwood. And I hope the next head coach do not feel pressure to keep this guy on the payroll. As Fox 71 pointed out here, roughly third of his colleagues produce better results than he does. It shouldn’t be that difficult for UCLA to find an above average DC if it get itself a very good head coach.
