Washington Football finds their new receivers coach.

After the departure of Matt Lubick, Washington football needed to find themselves a new receiver’s coach, and they went out and found themselves a good one. Junior Adams has been around the block, he played receiver for Oregon State and Montana State before beginning his coaching career.

He started off as the wide receivers coach at Eastern Washington in 2009-2013, before moving on to Boise State where he held the same title for two seasons. He then moved on to Western Kentucky, where he was promoted to offensive coordinator. He spent two seasons with the Hilltoppers, and the passing offense under him was ranked as high as sixth in the nation in 2017. However, when head coach Mike Sanford was fired in November, so was the rest of his staff. Adams recently had taken a job as the receivers coach at Appalachian State but was there for only 10 days before taking the job with the Huskies.

He’s going to have his work cut out for him right away, as the Huskies have an important visit next week from wide receiver prospect and current USC commit Puka Nacua. While Adams’ best recruit is Cooper Kupp, Chris Petersen should be more concerned about how he can develop the receivers on the roster right now. If he can help Ty Jones continue the upward trajectory he’s on, and find a way to unleash the full might of 2018 commits Marquis Spiker, Austin Osborne, and Trey Lowe, the Husky offense will look a lot more appealing to potential recruits.
