Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Secondary – Washington Huskies

By Sam Saig, August 17, 2009 9:10 am

The Washington Huskies defense wasn’t just bad last year; it was downright awful. UW finished near the bottom of the country in nearly every defensive category including: 110th nationally in total defense, 115th in pass efficiency defense, 116th in scoring defense, and 119th in turnovers gained.

Blame for these pitiful statistics can be placed a lot of places, but the secondary should certainly be near the top of the list. Both the cornerbacks and safeties were exposed, and while sheer talent may have been lacking, there also seemed to be no confidence or continuity within the unit.

Fortunately, the exciting regime change at U-Dub has breathed new life into a program searching for answers. The coaching change is especially welcome on defense, where new coordinator Nick Holt has already changed the culture with more intensity during practice.

He may need to do his best coaching job yet in the secondary (along with DB coaches Demetrice Martin and Jeff Mills), but Washington has the right staff for the job.
