Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb linked to high-profile job opening
Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb is a candidate for the same role at Notre Dame, per a report.
According to FootballScoop, Grubb is one of several candidates who have been vetted for the job with the Fighting Irish. The other names mentioned from the college game are Utah’s Andy Ludwig, Toledo’s Jason Candle and Colorado’s Sean Lewis. Notre Dame could also consider NFL options like Byron Leftwich and Brian Johnson.
Grubb has been in high demand this offseason. He was reportedly a candidate for the offensive coordinator job at Alabama, but turned it down. The Crimson Tide then pivoted to Tommy Rees, thus creating the opening on Notre Dame’s staff.
Washington finished 2nd nationally in yards per game in 2022 with 516. Grubb’s offense helped turn Michael Pennix Jr. into one of the most prolific passers in the country.
Grubb just finished his 1st season as Washington’s offensive coordinator. He previously served in that role under Kalen DeBoer at Fresno State.
Despite his ties to the west coast, Grubb has more experience in the midwest. He’s originally from Iowa and has coached at places like South Dakota State, Sioux Falls and Eastern Michigan..
