Coaches Tour: When the Play-Callers Come Calling

If you think the UW's football and basketball coaches spend the offseason kicking back, traveling, eating big meals and shooting the breeze… you're right.

Every spring, the UW Coaches Tour rolls across Washington state, bringing the big names to the small towns for a day of eating and socializing. This year, Husky Basketball Coaches Lorenzo Romar and Tia Jackson will be joined by new Football Coach Steve Sarkisian on the tour, giving Husky fans in places like Bellingham, Yakima and Port Orchard a chance to meet and interact with the masterminds behind the UW's marquee teams.

SEach stop on the tour features golf, a Husky Insider Dinner and plenty of opportunities to chat up the coaches and members of their staffs. Presented by Air Van, Coaches Tour is a fundraiser for UW scholarships, with money raised at each event benefiting students and student-athletes from that region.
