In a surprising move, UW has just announced that Aaron Roderick will not be joining the Husky football coaching staff as a receivers coach due to what it says are "family-related reasons.''
UPDATED --- Since first posting this, Utah has announced that Roderick is returning to coach the Utes. Here's the release, with quotes from Roderick about why he decided to return to Utah. Incluced is that his wife will return to her job as an assistant soccer coach at Utah, which I had been told initially was one reason he might not want to come to UW.
A press release states that "the search to fill the ninth of the nine UW football assistant coaching positions will continue.''
Roderick had been the last hire on UW's staff, agreeing to a two-year contract worth $200,000 per season after working the last four years at Utah.
It has also been confirmed that the two graduate assistants for next season will be Mike Anderson for defense and Klayton Adams for offense.
Anderson is a former linebacker at Idaho during the time Nick Holt coached there (here's some info on Anderson).
Adams was on the coaching staff last year at Western Washington. Here's his bio.
