Washington is doing its part to make sure the coaches responsible for UW’s remarkable 2022 turnaround know they’re valued.

Last week, UW announced a two-year contract extension for head coach Kalen DeBoer. On Tuesday, The Seattle Times’ Mike Vorel reported that offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb has also signed a contract extension.

According to Vorel, Grubb signed a two-year contract extension that’ll keep him in Seattle through 2025. The Times reported that Grubb will earn $1.45 million in 2023, $1.55 million in 2024, and then $1.67 million in 2025.

His base salary for 2022 and 2023 under the terms of his previous deal was reportedly $1.02 million. According to Vorel, the raise will make Grubb the highest-paid assistant in program history, topping Jimmy Lake’s $1.4 million in 2019.

Grubb was called an offensive wizard and “the best-kept secret in college football” at Pac-12 Media Day last July. In the months that followed, he engineered college football’s best offensive turnaround. UW improved its scoring output by 19.3 points per game year-over-year, a ridiculous improvement and one that underscores just how productive the offense has been.

At 40.8 points a game, Washington is the fifth-highest-scoring team in the FBS. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. leads the country in passing yards.

Grubb was a semifinalist for the Broyles Award, given to the top assistant in the country. When the five finalists for the award were announced and Grubb’s name was cut, there was outrage from Pac-12 country.

At the very least, Washington athletic director Jen Cohen and the administration know his value.

“I’ve told Jen this and I’ve told Kalen (DeBoer) this: I have a deep passion for calling plays,” Grubb said Monday. “For me, I do have a desire to be the best (offensive) coordinator in the country. That’s a deep-seated belief in who I am and what I want to be. So there’s definitely a path I’m on with that right now.”

But the job’s not done at Washington just yet.
