Washington Huskies defensive coordinator Nick Holt was fired yesterday after an embarrassing performance against Baylor in the Alamo Bowl.
The Huskies gave up nine touchdowns and 777 total yards of offense to the Bears and had no answer for the run game, as they allowed 482 yards on the ground.
Throughout the 2011 season, the Huskies' weakness has been the defense. Week in and week out the Huskies were torched by teams and gave up record-breaking numbers. Statistically, this year was the worst defense in school history.
The Huskies allowed the most points per game (35.9), yards per game (453.3) and passing yards per game (284.6) in school history.
Holt was not the only coach to be fired; linebackers coach Mike Cox and safeties coach Jeff Mills were also let go.
First question that pops into Husky fans' heads is, who will be Holt's successor?
These are my top candidates.
