A lot of positive response from Arizona's two latest hires

The Arizona Wildcats have now filled three of the four defensive openings with the hiring of former San Jose State University defensive backs coach Donte Williams and now former Boise State defensive coordinator Marcel Yates.

There were a lot mixed reactions when it came to the firings of Bill Kirelawich and Jeff Casteel, but with these two hires for Arizona, it seems as if there's a lot of hype surrounding them. Both seem to be slam dunk hires and strong recruiters on the west coast.
