Myers to leave Washington
Before coming to Seattle, Myers had a brief stint in Arizona coaching the Wildcat offensive line during their spring practices. Before that he was offensive coordinator at Boise State and also an assistant coach at Northern Arizona under ex-Husky quarterbacks coach Steve Axman.
A graduate of Eastern Washington, Myers coached at his alma mater from 1985 to 1991 in a variety of positions including tight ends, offensive line, linebackers and defensive line. He earned his undergraduate and master's degrees from EWU, in 1982 and 1986. Myers was a Division II honorable mention All-American at Eastern in 1981. He attended Columbia Basin Junior College from 1978-79 and helped his team to the 1978 national championship as the starting center on the offensive line.
Keith Gilbertson coordinated the Sun Bowl practices for the offensive line, and he was Rick Neuheisel's offensive line coach during Neuheisel's first year as Husky Head Coach. With former Husky GA and Louisville Offensive Coordinator John Pettas the 'hot name' in the UW coaching search to replace Axman, who has since gone to UCLA, it's conceivable Pettas could take over Gilbertson's duties in the booth and Gilbertson could go back to coaching in the trenches.
