Have the Huskies found their next offensive coordinator?
According to CoachingSearch.com, former Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease will join the staff of new UW coach Chris Petersen. The report doesn't specify Pease's role. No official announcements have been made by UW in regard to any new assistants since Petersen was hired.
Pease was fired by Florida after the Gators stumbled to a 4-8 record this season, their first losing season since 1979. Florida's offense was depleted by a handful of injuries to key players, including the Gators' top two quarterbacks. It was a long season in Gainesville.
Pease was an assistant under Petersen from 2006-2011 at Boise State, and was the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011. Prior to that, he coached receivers. He was Florida's offensive coordinator for two seasons under coach Will Muschamp.
