On one hand, University of Washington Huskies Women’s Basketball Team head coach Mike Neighbors has returned home to Arkansas. In the process, he bumped his salary up to $600,000 per year.  On the other hand, his replacement will likely come in at or just under that amount.

But the Washington Huskies Women’s team are losing players too. In fact, the Huskies are also saying their farewells to seniors in All-American Kelsey Plum, Chantel Osahor and Katie Collier. On one hand, roster spots need to be filled.  On the other hand, the Huskies must hire staff and recruit by September 2017.  Ultimately, the Washington Huskies Women’s Basketball Team already knew the 2016-2017 season would be a difficult act to follow.  In fact, it may be next to impossible.
