When Chris Petersen was hired after the 2013 season, no one knew for sure how long it might take to return the Husky program to the top levels of the college football world. It turns out, it took about three years.

In 2016, the Huskies had their best season since 2000 and one of their best ever, winning the Pac-12 Championship, earning a spot in the College Football Playoff and finishing ranked No. 4 in the final polls. They did it with high-achieving, young players across the starting lineup while also succeeding in the classroom at an unprecedented and sustained rate.

Off the field, Petersen’s impact on the football program’s academic success was clear as well. During the season (fall, 2015 academic quarter), the football team posted a team GPA of 3.12, highest in school history for football, breaking the old record, set the previous spring.

Petersen, 52, the only two-time winner of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award (2006 and 2009), compiled an exceptional 92-12 record in his eight seasons as Boise State head coach (2006-2013), including two unbeaten seasons (13-0 in 2006 and 14-0 in 2009) and two BCS bowl berths. He won five conference titles and posted a 57-6 record in conference play (WAC from 2006-10 and Mountain West from 2011-13).

Petersen and his wife, Barbara, are parents of two sons, Jack and Sam.



Keegan Cook officially took the reins as the Head Coach of Husky Volleyball in January of 2015, following two seasons as an assistant that produced two of the best years in Washington history, and his first two seasons leading the Dawgs have only built upon that foundation of excellence.

Two seasons as Head Coach have resulted in two Pac-12 Championships and two trips to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Championships, with five different Huskies earning AVCA All-America honors covering every position on the court, and a Pac-12 Player of the Year award for outside hitter Courtney Schwan. The Huskies are 60-8 over Cook’s first two years with a league record of 34-6, best in the Pac-12.

Cook got his start in collegiate coaching at St. Mary’s, first as a volunteer assistant, then a full-time assistant coach, eventually promoted to the top assistant for the Gaels. He spent eight years on the St. Mary’s staff, six as assistant coach from 2007-12, helping the Gaels become one of the top teams in the West Coast Conference.

A native of Pleasanton, Calif., Cook earned his Bachelor of Arts from St. Mary’s in 2007, majoring in Mathematics with a minor in Religious Studies and has excelled in statistical analysis as a Volleyball Information Supervisor (VIS) for the FIVB. Additionally, Cook was the head coach of the NorCal Volleyball Club for ten years, with ten club teams under his guidance. All of Cook’s teams qualified for the Junior Olympic Championships over his last five years and his 16-Under team won the 2008 Junior Olympic gold medal.



The University of Washington named Jody Wynn its head women’s basketball coach on April 14, 2017 after having served the previous eight seasons as the head coach at Long Beach State.

Wynn arrives in Seattle with more than 20 years of collegiate coaching experience. Most recently, she led Long Beach State to three consecutive 20-win campaigns, compiling a 69-30 over that three-year span, highlighted by last season’s Big West conference tournament championship that granted LBSU’s its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1992.

In her eight seasons at the Beach, Wynn rebuilt the program with an NCAA tournament berth, eight-straight Big West Tournament appearances and three Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) bids.

Wynn arrived in Long Beach State with 13 years of collegiate coaching experience under her belt. She spent five seasons as the senior assistant, recruiting coordinator and head of scouting at USC, where she was in charge of bringing in four nationally-ranked recruiting classes, including the No. 1-ranked group in 2006. On the court, Wynn coached seven All-Pac-10 performers, a conference freshman of the year and a WNBA draft pick.

The Brea, Calif., native was a four-year letterwinner and starting guard at USC from 1993-96. During her playing career, the Trojans compiled a record of 79-35 (.693), won the 1994 Pac-10 Conference championship and made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

The former Jody Anton is married to Derek Wynn and the couple has two daughters, Jada and Kaeli.
