Lubick, known as an ace recruiter, spent four years on the Ducks’ coaching staff. He spent the past six weeks as the co-offensive coordinator at Baylor.
Washington coach Chris Petersen has filled the opening on his staff, hiring former Oregon offensive coordinator Matt Lubick as the Huskies’ new co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach, the school announced Wednesday.
Lubick replaces Bush Hamdan, who was named the Atlanta Falcons’ quarterbacks coach last week.
“I am excited to add Matt to our coaching staff,” Petersen said in a statement. “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 co-offensive coordinator, Lubick reunites with UW offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith. Lubick was an assistant coach at Oregon State in 1999-2000 when Smith was the Beavers’ starting quarterback.
