In my opinion I wouldn't limit your squats to once a week, limit the volume and absolute weight used for sure but you don't want to ignore the synergy between the two lifts.
Something like Deadlift and assistance done prior to Squat work multiple times a week may work. I'd split it up in various categories and try and include as much work as possible during the week, starting each week off with a maximum pull.
Deadlifts: Deadlift, Deficits, Partials, Chains
Upper back: Chins, Rows, Shrugs
Lower back/posterior: GMs, RDLs, SLDL, Cleans
A bunch of that stuff done numerous times a week might be a good idea. I'm going to PM you some online logs which you might like the look of.
