Congratulations to Nigel Burton
Congratulations to former Husky defensive back Nigel Burton, who was named the head coach at Portland State today.
Burton, who played one year at Pacific before transferring to the UW, was a three-year starter at safety, known for both his academic excellence off the field and his ferocious hits on it. Fans will remember several key hits he made on quarterbacks in the late 1980s (Stanford's Chad Hutchinson comes to mind) and knocking down a pass on a two-point conversion to preserve a win over Oregon State in a Husky Stadium thriller.
Nigel had been serving as defensive coordinator at Nevada, had previously served as an assistant coach at Portland State and Oregon State.
