Former Arizona CB coach praises new hire John Richardson
Dewayne Walker says Arizona cornerbacks are in good hands with their new position coach.
Walker announced a parting of ways with Arizona on Sunday via Twitter. Monday, he used the social media platform to praise his successor, John Richardson. Walker, a well-traveled coach, considers Richardson a rising star in the coaching field.
So happy to see John Richardson back in the Pac 12. I think this guy is a rising star. Had a chance to spend some time with him when when i was with the Browns. I came away very impressed. Corners are in good hands. With Richardson and Akina Wildcat fans are in good hands.

Walker, 62, left Arizona after 2 seasons on staff, his 34th year of coaching football. As Walker notes, Richardson arrives with Pac-12 familiarity. Richardson joins Jedd Fisch’s Wildcats coaching staff after 2 seasons at Washington State.
Richardson, a Compton, California native, also coached at North Dakota State, his alma mater.
