Mike Neighbors is named new head coach at Washington


"I'm elated," Mike Neighbors said. When Kevin (McGuff) left, the first words out of my mouth were `I want to be the head coach of the basketball team at the University of Washington - this particular team, these players, the recruits we have coming in.' "When I got into this business 13 years ago, Washington wasn't one of my `dream jobs.' My dream jobs were regional. But when I got here to Seattle with Kevin two years ago, to this program and this university, this became my dream job. "And now here I am."
