California line coach Jim Michalczik will become the offensive coordinator for Steve Sarkisian's football staff at Washington.
The Washington Huskies are expected to announce a handful of new assistant coaches in the next day or two. And Sunday night, it was confirmed that Jim Michalczik will become the offensive coordinator for Steve Sarkisian’s staff.
Michalczik has been the offensive-line coach at California the past seven years and was also the Bears’ offensive coordinator in 2007. He is a Port Angeles native who played guard at Washington State from 1984 to 1988, playing alongside current Cougars coach Paul Wulff on the 1988 Aloha Bowl champs.
Michalczik told the Contra Costa Times Sunday night that “professionally, it was an offer I couldn’t turn down.”
While Michalczik will be the offensive coordinator, Sarkisian has said he will call the plays for the Huskies.
