Washington moved quickly to fill its opening for offensive coordinator, hiring former Maryland assistant Bush Hamdan, the quarterbacks coach for the Atlanta Falcons. The Huskies announced the hiring Sunday, though Hamdan won't take over his new role until the NFL season is over. He replaces Jonathan Smith, who was named coach at Oregon State earlier this week. Hamdan spent the 2015-16 seasons on Washington's coaching staff before leaving for the NFL. His final role with Washington was wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator. In 2010, he worked as an offensive quality control coach for Maryland before being promoted to the quarterbacks coach for the team's game in the Military Bowl against East Carolina. During that season, Terps quarterback Danny O'Brien broke several freshman passing records and earned Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year honors. Hamdan also worked at Davidson, Arkansas State, Florida, Sacramento State and Colorado. He played for Washington coach Chris Petersen at Boise State from 2006 to 2008.
