Mora Speaks . . .

by: Michael Steffes

. . . and says nothing. At least, nothing about the speculation that he might leave the Hawks for the Huskies in the offseason, which is something I think is being manufactured by overzealous Huskies fans. This is getting to be frustrating, but only because there is an easy remedy.

Hopefully he understands that by taking this route he will only be fueling more speculation from those who desperately want him in Montlake.

In his defense, it a situation similar to Nick Saban, who as head coach of the Dolphins in '06 shot down rumors of his interest in the Alabama job 642 times and still continued to get asked about it on a daily basis. Of course, he also ended up taking the job after Miami's season ended.

I am not sure I understand how Mora saying he will be the next Seahawks coach and not the next Huskies coach breaks his promise of laying low this year. I also understand he doesn't want to be a distraction to the team right now; however, it is my belief that he is causing a distraction with his continued silence.

An honest and sincere statement about his intentions would settle this. Of course, that might be easier said than done. ~END~
