Head Coach, Washington Football
As my second season with Washington begins, I want to share my sincere appreciation for you — our loyal fans and donors. Thank you for welcoming me and my entire staff into the Husky family. Montlake is a special place because of your support.
This season was a success — not only because of our big wins against Michigan State and Oregon and hard-fought victories at the Apple Cup and Alamo Bowl — but because of how our team responded to adversity in the middle of the season. Overcoming and learning from our losses speaks to the immense amount of trust and belief within our program, and I’m proud of the solid foundation we’ve built.
The staff, student-athletes and I refer to this perspective as a starving mindset. We’re not just hungry; we’re starving for greatness. It takes an incredible amount of hard work and dedication to support this mentality, and I want to thank everyone for staying with Husky Football this past year.
I also want to extend my thanks to our Tyee donors for supporting our program in numerous, invaluable ways. From the facilities we practice and work in every day to our strength and conditioning, from the nutrition we provide to our academic services — all are impacted by your donations. Your generosity allows us to recruit and develop the best players from across the nation and retain the best coaches and staff to support them. You have a direct impact on the success of our team, both on the field and in the classroom. Thank you.
We look forward to an even bigger year next season. Let’s make game day at Husky stadium extraordinary. Bring the excitement into The Greatest Setting in College Football and get to know all the incredible people in our program, not just those on the field. This team, from the staff to the players, is really special. Let’s show the world who we are.
