We got our man.
Posted by wewantwalker on January 2, 2008
DeWayne Walker has been hired by Rick Neuheisel. I’m still awaiting details on the contract, but I would bet its for $400-450,000 and at least 2 years.
Tomorrow we’ll have our farewell post.
I’m also going to come out and say that I think its a 99 percent surety that Eric Scott is going to be retained as well. Where do I get that from? Another hunch:
1) Scott is a UCLA Alum. I think by going after Ken Norton Jr., RN was trying to establish a UCLA vibe amongst his staff as best he could. This type of behavior would include going after guy’s like Scott
2) Walker knows and likes Scott and will put in a good word for him
3) Scott is an unbelivable recruiter and I’m sure RN knows this.
If I’m right, that makes me 3 for 3.
Anyway, thats all for now. Tomorrow is the farewell post, which ive been working on for quite a while and a new beginning at another address.
I want to thank all of you for your support. I really think we made a difference and I hope we can continue to make a difference.
DeWayne Walker will be a fantastic coach at the D-I level. But right now, I’m just happy he’s our defensive coordinator.
