Tuesday links and news

As I’m sure you’ve all heard already, Washington State is looking for a new head coach and one name coming up is that of Washington offensive coordinator Tim Lappano. We usually talk to Lappano on Tuesdays, so if he shows up, I’ll pass along any updates if he talks about the WSU job.

Asked about Lappano as a WSU coaching candidate, Tyrone Willingham said he had not heard from WSU or talked to Lappano about it yet, but added:

“The first thing is that I think Tim is an outstanding candidate, and I think that all the coaches on our staff are outstanding candidates, so you kind of prepare yourself that one day, they’ll hopefully get that opportunity to be a head coach if that’s what they’re desiring. The thing is to do everything we can to help them with that opportunity and at the same time make sure that the business of the University of Washington is taken care of.”

On to some links.

The Huskies got a verbal commitment from Prosser reviever Cody Bruns yesterday. Bruns has broken several state and national receiving records, and will help give the Huskies depth a position where they lose a lot of seniors this year.

I got a chance to see Bruns play a bunch last year and during his sophomore year, and while he may not have a ton of size and blazing speed, I think he’ll be a productive college receiver. For starters, he catches the ball, something that’s been a problem for the Huskies at times this year. Also, he’ll come in with a better understanding of how to play the position than a lot of high school guys would thanks to the complex, pass-happy offense they run at Prosser.

As for our coverage, we had this story on the Huskies’ mentality heading to Hawaii. We also had a notebook, which leads off with Hawaii players and coach June Jones saying good things about the Huskies.

The Honolulu Advertiser has a notebook leading off with news that a few players had their helmets stolen during the celebration of last weekend’s win over Boise State.

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin has this about the Warriors getting back to work after an emotional win to clinch the WAC title.
