Washington will have a holdover on its football coaching staff after all.
New coach Chris Petersen has completed his first staff at UW by retaining Jordan Paopao as the Huskies’ tight-ends coach, a position Paopao held at UW in 2013. Before that, Paopao had served as a graduate assistant for two seasons on Steve Sarkisian’s staff, overseeing tight ends both seasons.
Petersen had offered the tight-ends coaching position to Marques Tuiasosopo, who last week accepted an offer from Sarkisian to become the USC associate head coach/tight ends coach.
Petersen and his new staff will hold a news conference Tuesday morning at UW.
