USC defensive coordinator Nick Holt is reported in Seattle today to discuss the Huskies defensive coordinator position, and now a 3 p.m. press conference has been called amid speculation he will get the job.
New UW head coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed his interest in Holt to the Los Angeles media over the weekend.
If Holt joins Sarkisian, that would put the offensive and defensive coordinators from the 2008 Trojans on the UW sidelines in 2009.
Holt coordinated what is generally thought to be one of the great defenses in college football history. He also has a bit of a Northwest connection, having served as head coach at Idaho in 2004-05 and serving on the Vandals staff from 1990-97.
