"I've known Scott as a player and as a coach for a long time. He was one of my first hires as a newly-appointed head coach," Petersen said. "We're just thrilled to have him join us here."
Huff, who worked on Petersen's staff at Boise State in each of Petersen's eight years in charge, comes to the UW after 11 seasons at his alma mater. He started 40 games at center for the Broncos between 1999 and 2002, the last two years of which Petersen was Boise State's offensive coordinator.
"We are extremely familiar with him as a coach and as a person," Petersen continued. "Not only does he fit our style of play, but also our culture."
Last year, Huff served as the Broncos' co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. He'd previously served as tight ends coach in 2006 (Petersen's first season as head coach), offensive line coach from 2007 to 2009, tight ends coach again from 2010 through 2013 and as special teams coordinator in 2012 and 2013.
