Washington Football: Eric Kiesau Joins Staff As Wide Receivers Coach, According To Reports

According to a tweet by ESPN's Greg Biggins, Eric Kiesau will be the new wide receivers coach for the Washington Huskies.

Kiesau was California Golden Bears' wide receivers coach and the passing game coordinator. He joins defensive line coach and recruiting guru Tosh Lupoi as two members of the Cal coaching staff to bolt for the Huskies.

Lupoi's defection caused shockwaves down the west coast as one of the best recruiters in the country left Cal for the Huskies and a big pay raise. It isn't known if Lupoi had anything to do with Kiesau's decision to join the staff as well with the two not being associated with one another due to being on different sides of the ball, but Lupoi had to make the gig more attractive to Kiesau since Kiesau has a recruiting past as well.

Kiesau spent only one season as wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator at Cal after previously serving as WR coach and recruiting coordinator for four seasons (2002-2005) in a previous stint with the Bears. He then spent 2006-2010 on the University of Colorado coaching staff.
