Yarber leaving for ASU

Nothing is official yet, but all indications are that Washington wide receiver coach Eric Yarber is leaving for a similar position at Arizona State.
At ASU, Yarber will be reunited with Dennis Erickson, for whom he played for at Idaho in 1985 and who later gave Yarber his entry into college coaching.
Yarber couldn’t be reached for comment but one source said that Yarber is leaving for Tempe.
A UW spokesman would neither confirm nor deny that Yarber is leaving, saying only that “it would be inappropriate to comment until it’s official.”
Yarber has been considered one of Washington’s better recruiters since joining the staff of Tyrone Willingham in 2005.
Yarber coached with Erickson with the Seahawks, Oregon State and the 49ers before coming to UW when Erickson and his staff was fired at San Francisco following the 2004 season.
Yarber will be the second assistant to leave UW’s staff since Willingham took over. Last season, secondary coach Steven Wilks left for a job with the Chicago Bears.
