SEATTLE (AP) – New Washington defensive coordinator Justin
Wilcox will make $750,000 in his first year in charge of the
Huskies defense, part of a three-year deal Wilcox has agreed to
after leaving Tennessee to come to Seattle. Washington released
salary information for its new assistant coaches Saturday. Wilcox
left Tennessee after two seasons. He was set to make $700,000 this
year for the Volunteers, but instead will receive a significant
raise with the Huskies. Wilcox will make $800,000 in 2013 and
$850,000 in 2014.
