Since being announced as Washington's Associate Head Coach, Pitching Coach and Recruiting Coordinator, Elliott Cribby has hit the ground running and never looked back. Cribby, who played collegiately for the Huskies from 2006 to 2008, joined the staff at his alma mater after one year at Purdue and five years at Seattle U. In his first six months, he has tirelessly worked to put the final touches on the Huskies' 2020 roster while coaching up his new stable of pitchers. In addition, he has assembled one of the nation's top incoming classes for 2021 and is pounding the pavement looking for talent in 2022 and beyond.
