Ryan Grubb Named UW's Offensive Coordinator & QBs Coach
New Washington head coach Kalen DeBoer has announced the first member of his coaching staff, naming Ryan Grubb as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
"I'm excited to welcome Ryan, Stephanie and Falynn to our football program," said DeBoer. "In our time working together, Ryan has consistently produced highly effective offenses and, through his leadership, has excelled in developing young players. I know he'll continue to do that here at UW, working with our quarterbacks and as the leader of our offense."
"I want to thank Coach DeBoer and Jen Cohen for the opportunity to lead the Huskies' offense," Grubb said. "I feel strongly that this can be one of the best offenses in the Pac-12. I'm looking forward to getting to know our players and this community, and getting to work for this historic and successful program."
Grubb was a member of DeBoer's staff at Fresno State the last two seasons, serving as associate head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
This past season, Grubb helped lead Fresno State to a 9-3 overall record. As of the end of the regular season, the Bulldogs ranked No. 1 in the Mountain West Conference in total offense (463.6 yards per game) and second in scoring offense (33.6 points per game) and passing offense (330.1 yards per game). In 2020, Fresno State also led the conference with 479.3 yards of total offense per game.
Grubb has spent considerable time alongside DeBoer over the last decade-plus. He joined DeBoer at Fresno State ahead of the 2017 season, as offensive line coach and run game coordinator, when DeBoer arrived as offensive coordinator. Prior to that, he was offensive line coach at Eastern Michigan during DeBoer's three seasons (2014-16) as offensive coordinator.
A former running back and wide receiver at Buena Vista University (Storm Lake, Iowa), Grubb first worked with DeBoer at the University of Sioux Falls from 2007-09. He was offensive line coach and run game coordinator those three seasons, when DeBoer, as head coach at his alma mater, led the Cougars to two NAIA national championships, a runner-up finish, and a 42-1 record in those three years. He continued on as USF offensive coordinator for four years (2010-13).
