Dan Cozzetto was named the Huskies’ offensive line coach and run game coordinator in February of 2009.
During his first season, Cozzetto oversaw an offensive line that made steady improvement during the course of the season, culminating with dominant performances in the final two weeks of the season, when the Huskies rushed for a combined 442 yards.
The 2009 offensive line also paved the way for tailback Chris Polk’s 1,113-yard season, the seventh-highest rushing total in UW history and the most ever by a freshman. This is Cozzetto’s second stint with the Huskies, as he also served as the UW offensive line coach in 2003.
A 29-year coaching veteran, Cozzetto has coached for a total of 16 years for four different teams in the Pacific-10 Conference. Cozzetto coached under Erickson for a total of five seasons: at ASU (2008), Idaho (2006), the San Francisco 49ers (2004) and at Oregon State (2000-02). He has also served as an assistant coach at Washington (2003), California (1990-91) and Idaho (1979-89) under other head coaches.
A native of Spokane, Wash., Cozzetto graduated from Idaho, where he played tight end, linebacker and guard.
