Washington hires Cozzetto; names Nussmeier offensive coordinator

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Washington has filled out its staff under first-year coach Steve Sarkisian, announcing Thursday the hiring of Dan Cozzetto as offensive line coach and running game coordinator, while promoting quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier to offensive coordinator.

Sarkisian will call offensive plays.

The Cozzetto hire leaked a week ago but the formal announcement didn't come until Thursday, perhaps because the Huskies coaches were on a retreat.

Cozzetto was Arizona State's tight ends coach the previous two seasons. He also coached the Huskies offensive line in 2003.
