Breaking News University of Washington Huskies Hire Jedd Fisch as Head Coach

With Kalen DeBoer leaving the University of Washington Huskies to take over for Nick Saban at Alabama, Washington had to find their guy. Quickly! In only two days The Washington Huskies have agreed to a seven-year, 54.3-million-dollar contract with Ex-Arizona Head Coach Jedd Fisch.

Jedd Fisch Coaching Career

Coach Fisch has an overall winning percentage of .436% going only 17-22 in his three seasons at Arizona.

In year one with the Wildcats Fisch ended the year 1-11, as the only win came against The University of California beating them 10-3.

In year two, Wildcat fans have seen a big jump as they fell just short of a bowl game finishing 5-7. A rough back half of the schedule prevented them from surpassing the six-win mark as they had to play three top-fifteen teams in their last five games.

Year three is where the magic happened. In 2023 the Wildcats ran away to a 10-3 season and finished the year ranked number 11 in the country. Coach Fisch also brought Arizona their first bowl win since their 45-37 win over New Mexico in the 2015 Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

How does Fisch Help the Washington Huskies?

Fisch brings an offensive mind that spent time under Pete Carroll in Seattle while also bringing a program rebuilder, which Washington needs now.

Last season Coach Fisch reeled in the top 20:

Scoring Offense

3rd down offense

And Passing Offense

(All could have been higher if Noah Fifita started day one)

As far as rebuild goes he turned a winless 2020 Arizona team to a number 11 ranked, 10-win team in just three seasons. With multiple big key players bailing to follow DeBour to Alabama potentially, Jedd Fischer is a guy who can put life back into this program and try to keep a few of these kids around.

With the transfer portal as alive as ever you can expect multiple talented wildcats to follow including Star quarterback Noah Fifita potentially.

The Washington Huskies will have their first press conference with Coach Fisch on Tuesday, January 16th so be sure to tune in and hear the goals and expectations for the future of the Huskies.
