Chris Petersen’s first assistant coaching staff at Washington has been assembled. For the most part.
The new Huskies coach still needs to hire someone to coach tight ends, but the rest of Petersen’s staff has been announced.
The coaches and their duties, in no particular order …
Jonathan Smith — Offensive coordinator/Quarterbacks
Brent Pease — Receivers
Chris Strausser — Offensive line/Associate head coach
Keith Bhonapha — Running backs/Recruiting coordinator
Pete Kwiatkowski — Defensive coordinator
Jimmy Lake — Defensive backs
Jeff Choate — Defensive line/Special teams
Bob Gregory — Linebackers/Assistant head coach
Rich Rasmussen — Director of player personnel
Mike McHugh — Director of football operations
Tim Socha — Strength and conditioning
Salaries for assistant coaches are not yet available. UW also announced that former defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi will be reassigned to a different role in the athletic department. Lupoi is being investigated by the school for an alleged recruiting violation.
