Todd Milles filled in at Husky practice for me yesterday, as I had to make a quick trip to Spokane. And besides this lengthy practice report with several notes on the secondary battle, Austin Seferian-Jenkins' great catch and other nuggets, Todd cranked out this story on the UW coaching staff staying together for the last three seasons.
“We are all in – everybody is all in at this deal,” wide receivers coach Jimmie Dougherty said. “And on top of that, we have fun doing it. We do actually like each other. We hang out even when we are not here … on the weekends. Our families all get along together.”
Dating back to 1954, there is no record of a Huskies staff such as this staying together for three seasons.Todd then asks some fun and entertaining questions to head coach Steve Sarkisian about the staff. Perhaps the greatest revelation is that the staff has an affinity for burgers from Dick's Drive In on nights when they work late.
