Dawgs get Keith Heyward to coach Defensive Backs with Justin Wilcox
The Dawgs pried a defensive minded football coach away from the Oregon Ducks and Chip Kelly this week.
Keith Heyward has joined the Washington football coaching staff as defensive backs coach, Husky head coach Steve Sarkisian announced today.
In his first season in charge of the secondary in Corvallis (2008), he coached cornerbacks Brandon Hughes and Keenan Lewis, currently with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively.
"Keith is a bright, young coach and a terrific recruiter," Sarkisian said. "I think he'll be a great fit with our new defensive staff, in particular Justin Wilcox, our new coordinator."
