That didn't last long, did it? After former Washington Athletic Director Jen Cohen decided to leave Seattle to take the same job at USC, the Huskies wasted no time in bringing in Troy Dannen. Now, about six months after landing the job, Dannen is already on his way out.

According to insider Pete Thamel, Dannen is Nebraska-bound. Dannen recently fired UW men's basketball coach John Hopkins, and he was hard at work finding a replacement. Now, that job will go to someone else.

It's been a rough run recently for the Huskies, who also saw head football coach Kalen DeBoer leave for Alabama. UW will now look to fill this new void as soon as possible, but for them to be on their third AD in less than a year is not ideal.
