RENTON, Wash. (AP) -Seahawks assistant coach Jim Mora said Friday he's not interested in the Washington coaching position.
``I am not a candidate for the University of Washington coaching vacancy,'' Mora said in a written statement handed out by a Seahawks spokesman.
Mora is a former Washington player who began his coaching career there as a graduate assistant under Don James in 1984. He has already signed a contract to succeed Mike Holmgren as Seahawks coach beginning in 2009. The deal is believed to be worth almost $5 million annually.
Washington coach Tyrone Willingham was fired Monday for being 11-32 in three-plus seasons, but his dismissal is not effective until the end of this season.
