Audio: Husky secondary coach Keith Heyward and Pac-12 Network's Rick Neuheisel talk to KJR

New Huskies secondary coach Keith Heyward talked with Dave "Softy" Mahler yesterday. Nothing really earth shattering coming out of the interview.

  • He reiterated that the Huskies are going to be aggressive and play more press coverage, which means no more 8 yard cushions.
  • Heyward wants to Desmond Trufant to just play, and not play conservative, which he thought he'd been doing after looking at film.
  • Shaq Thompson can vie for playing time if he plays well. But "he as to earn it."

Meanwhile former UCLA head coach, former Washington head coach, former Colorado head coach, former 49ers coaching candidate Rick Neuheisel joined Mitch in the Morning to talk football.
