Ryan Grubb has been a key piece for Kalen DeBoer’s staff going back to Fresno State. After just one season in the Power 5, Grubb is already making a name for himself as an elite offensive mind in the country.

Recently, ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg put together a list of the top assistants to keep an eye on around the country for the 2023 college football season. Rittenberg included Grubb on that list under the “assistants heating up” section.

Here’s what Rittenberg had to say about Grubb:

After just one season at the Power 5 level, Grubb became one of the nation’s most coveted offensive playcallers. He generated interest from Texas A&M and Alabama this winter but will remain at Washington, which returns Heisman Trophy contender Michael Penix Jr. this fall. Washington led the nation in passing and finished No. 7 in scoring in Grubb’s first season as coordinator.

The Huskies finished 7th nationally with 39.7 points per game behind that prolific passing attack engineered by Grubb. Washington also produced 11 wins in 2022, the best finish for the program since a 12-2 record for the 2016 season.

Prior to serving as the OC and QBs coach for the Huskies, Grubb was the OC for Fresno State from 2019-21. We’ll see if his career takes another step forward in 2023.
