REPORT: Chris Strausser is going to Denver

The Denver Post, among other Colorado-based news outlets, are reporting that Washington Offensive Line Coach Chris Strausser will be joining the Denver Broncos. Strausser was one of the coaches that came over with Chris Petersen from Boise State back at the end of 2013.

Here is a link to the Post report, which has the Broncos finalizing a deal to get Strausser.  9News initially broke the story. 

Washington has not commented on Strausser's move yet. 

This is the second time Strausser will have coached in Colorado. He coached at CU as their Offensive Line Coach and Assistant Head Coach. 

Strausser is the second UW assistant coach to leave for the NFL after the Huskies' 2016 season, one that found them No. 4 in the country at the end of the season. Receivers Coach Bush Hamdan left to coach in Atlanta a little over a week ago. He was replaced at UW by former Oregon Offensive Coordinator Matt Lubick three days ago. 

Hopefully we'll have a comment from Petersen on Strausser's departure soon. 

Expect names like former UO OL Coach Steve Greatwood, recently hired at Cal, and Arizona's Jim Michalczik, a Washington native, to pop up in the discussion of Strausser's replacement at Montlake.
