The Arizona Wildcats defense was shredded Saturday in the loss to Hawaii and people are not happy. is now a thing, and there are plenty of people out there calling for Chuck Cecil to take as the team’s new defensive coordinator.

Meanwhile, former UA defensive back Robert Golden (2008-11) made a public offer to help coach up the secondary, which allowed 436 passing yards and five touchdowns in Honolulu.

“Give me a ring,” he wrote to Arizona Football on Twitter. “Let’s correct some issues.”

Golden, who had 183 tackles, four interceptions and two pick-sixes at Arizona, said he could be in Tucson as early as Monday, and probably knows a thing or two having played in the NFL for several seasons after his UA career ended.

Unfortunately, NCAA rules prohibit schools from hiring more than 10 on-field coaches, so the Wildcats are going to have to correct their longstanding defensive issues with the folks who are already in-house.
