Huskies add Boise State assistant Scott Huff as offensive line coach
Just a day after Washington confirmed it had lost offensive line coach Chris Strausser to the NFL’s Denver Broncos, they have his old position filled.
The Huskies announced Wednesday that Scott Huff has joined the program as offensive line coach, reuniting him with head coach Chris Petersen. Huff comes from Boise State, where he served under Petersen in multiple roles for eight years. Huff remained with the Broncos after Petersen moved on to UW in 2014, and last season he served as Boise State’s offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator.
“I’ve known Scott as a player and as a coach for a long time. He was one of my first hires as a newly-appointed head coach,” Petersen said in a press release. “We’re just thrilled to have him join us here. … We are extremely familiar with him as a coach and as a person. Not only does he fit our style of play, but also our culture.”
A nominee for the 2016 Broyles Award, which is given annually to the best assistant coach in college football, Huff had previously held tight ends coach and special teams coach positions in Boise. He played for the Broncos as a center from 1999 through 2002, his last two seasons of which Petersen was the Broncos offensive coordinator.
