Although the Washington Huskies have been out more than nationally, they have a rich football tradition. Much of it was built by the late great GOAT of Washington head coaches, Don James. Jim Owens is the other HC on the U-Dub Mt. Rushmore.
Washington has 17 conference championships and four division titles. Washington has two national titles (1960 and 1991).
College Football Hall of Fame members from Washington includes Don James, Steve Emtman, and Lincoln Kennedy. And then Hugh McElhenny, Arnie Weinmeister, and Warren Moon are Huskies in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
In 2020, then-Washington Huskies rookie head coach Jimmy Lake didn't get much of a debut season. Lake led Washington to three wins in four games and a berth in the Pac-12 championship game. However, due to the pandemic, the Huskies had to forego their chance for the title.
It was a fitting end to a bizarre season for Washington. Lake had taken over for retired coach and Northwest legend Chris Peterson, but it was impossible to get a read on his coaching ability based on such an incomplete season.
For the 2021 season, Lake got his chance to show what he can do over a full schedule. And it was a disaster. Washington finished 4-8, and Lake failed to complete the season. He was fired for a multitude of reasons. In sum, he lost the support of big-money donors and regular fans.
Kalen DeBoer took over in 2022 and ripped off an 11-2 season with a final national ranking of 8th. A new era of glory beckons at U-Dub.
