"Game Notes" from Today's Locker Room Sports Show

The Locker Room was back at it on NewsRadio 610 KONA to run down all the sports news after a busy sports weekend that included the NFL Wild Card weekend and a college football coach signing that has a lot of importance to Washington college football fans. 

The New Coach of the Washington Huskies

The University of Washington (UW) has a new head coach. It took just the weekend to replace Kalen DeBoer after he left UW on Friday for Alabama. Jedd Fisch, formally the head coach at Arizona, will now lead the Dawgs in their new era as members of the Big 10. Fisch has Big 10 experience as a position coach with Michigan during the 2015-2016 season.
