UW, Grubb Sign New Contract to be the Highest Paid OC in the Pac-12

University of Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb already signed a two-year contract extension since the regular season concluded.

On Tuesday, Grubb received his second raise in as many months making him the second highest paid assistant coach in college football behind Georgia OC Todd Monken.

Grubb will earn $2 million each year starting in 2023 with his contract through the 2025 season, a source confirmed to Cascadia Sports. There are no annual escalators in Grubb’s new deal, first reported by The Athletic.

Over the weekend reports surfaced that Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher sought Grubb to be the Aggies next offensive coordinator. His latest raise puts to rest any thought of the Huskies play-caller leaving for another school.

During his weekly Monday press conference following UW’s 51-33 victory over Washington State Grubb stated he is interested in being a head coach at some point. However, with his long-standing relationship with Kalen DeBoer, the two have a firm understanding that if Grubb does choose to leave it will be for the right reasons.

“For me, I’m in a really good spot with that,” Grubb said. “I don’t have to beat around the bush or anything like that. Ultimately Kalen will want what’s best for me and my career. He wants me to have all those experiences as a head coach someday.

“For me to be able to talk to him and use him as a mentor in those situations – that’s what you really want. If and when those days come it’s for the right job.”

Grubb came to Washington with DeBoer from Fresno State after the two spent four combined seasons together in the Mountain West. Prior to that the duo coached together at Sioux Falls and Eastern Michigan for a combined six seasons.

Since their arrival the offense has turned into one of the most prolific unit in the country. UW is currently tied for fourth with Alabama averaging 40.8 points per game heading into the Alamo Bowl on Thursday against the University of Texas.

With junior quarterback Michael Penix Jr. returning for a final season in 2023 and DeBoer signed through the 2028 season the Husky offense is set to continue rolling for the foreseeable future.
