Mora makes it official: UW not an option

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Seahawks secondary coach Jim Mora released a statement ending speculation that he might become a candidate for the coaching vacancy at the University of Washington.

Taking the Washington job wasn't feasible after Mora signed a contract to become head coach of the Seahawks beginning in 2009.

The statement released Friday addresses what has become mostly a regional phenomenon in the Northwest, namely the notion that Mora might rather coach at his alma mater than for the Seahawks. The statement pretty much ends the discussion.
