The Washington Huskies didn’t waste time finding a new offensive coordinator after Jonathan Smith’s departure earlier in the week to become Oregon State’s head coach.
Bush Hamdan will be UW’s OC and quarterbacks coach in 2018, returning to Chris Petersen’s staff following one season as the Atlanta Falcons’ QB coach. He will finish the season with Atlanta before reporting to Montlake.
“I’m very excited that Bush is coming back to join our staff,” Petersen said in a press release from the school. “He’s part of the family, and he’s going to do an outstanding job for us.”
Hamdan coached Washington’s wide receivers and was the team’s pass game coordinator in 2016. The season prior, he handled offensive quality control for the Huskies.
Since joining the coaching ranks in 2009, Hamdan has spent time at Davidson, Arkansas State, Florida, Sacramento State, Maryland and Colorado.
