Add another open coordinator spot to the list of SEC vacancies. ESPN is reporting that Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox and linebackers coach Peter Sirmon have both agreed to join the staff at Washington.
Wilcox — in his second year at UT — managed to lead the young, thin Vols to a Top 35 national ranking in total defense. He and Sirmon both played football at Oregon. Wilcox was the defensive coordinator at Oregon before joining Tennessee’s staff.
Derek Dooley is also in need of a replacement for Eric Russell, the Vols’ special teams coordinator and tight ends coach who left for Washington State last month.
