Chris Petersen’s coaching staff at Washington has added Matt Lubick as co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach, the school confirmed Wednesday.

Lubick has had a busy last year. After serving as Oregon’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach from 2013 through 2015, he moved up to the Ducks’ OC job in 2016. Oregon moved on from head coach Mark Helfrich’s staff following a disappointing 4-8 season, though, leading to Lubick joining Ole Miss in December, then Baylor in January. That makes the Washington gig his fourth in three months.

“I am excited to add Matt to our coaching staff,” Petersen said in a press release. “He has earned a national reputation as an innovative coaching mind and a successful recruiter. Equally as important, we believe he will be a terrific fit with our staff, players and the University of Washington.”

As UW’s wide receivers coach, Lubick replaces Bush Hamdan, who took the Atlanta Falcons’ quarterbacks coach job earlier this month. A 45-year-old Montana native, Lubick will share OC duties with Jonathan Smith, who has been Washington’s OC and QB coach since 2014.

Lubick was a defensive back in his playing days with Western Montana College from 1991 to 1994. He started his coaching career in 1995 as a graduate assistant with Colorado State, where his dad, Sonny Lubick, was head coach from 1993 through 2007. Prior to his four seasons with Oregon, he served on coaching staffs at Cal State Northridge (1996, defensive backs coach) , San Jose State (1997-98, WR coach), Oregon State (1999-2000, DB coach), Colorado State (2001-04, WR coach), Ole Miss (2005-06, WR coach), Arizona State (2007-09, DB coach) and Duke (2010-12, WR coach).
