Kalen DeBoer will likely be Washington’s next head football coach.

Not Matt Campbell, or Justin Wilcox, or Bob Stoops, or Kalani Sitake, or any of the other names that inhabited two weeks of coach search stories and message board threads. Certainly not Lincoln Riley, who may have instantly shifted the Pac-12 power structure by trading Oklahoma for USC on Sunday.

UW athletic director Jen Cohen arrived in Fresno, Calif., Monday to attempt to finalize a deal with DeBoer, multiple sources confirmed to The Times.
