Willingham not ready to finalize Washington coaching staff

SEATTLE -- Washington coach Tyrone Willingham isn't quite
ready to finalize his coaching staff for next season.

Willingham spoke Monday about new offensive assistant Brian
White, who signed a one-year contract last Friday. White is
expected to be the Huskies special teams/tight ends coach.

But White's assignment might change based on who Willingham
hires for the final opening on his offensive staff. Currently, the
Huskies are without a running backs coach after Trent Miles became
head coach at Indiana State.

As for White, Willingham says he first became aware of White
when he was the offensive coordinator at Wisconsin. White was named
the American Football Coaches Association Division I assistant
coach of the year in 2004. He was fired after serving as offensive
coordinator at Syracuse this past season.
