Former UW offensive coordinator now working for former UW assistant

Thanks to Vince Grippi at the Spokesman-Review for locating and linking a story that some of you longtime Husky fans may find interesting, as well.
It’s the news that Bill Diedrick, who was UW’s offensive coordinator in 1994-95 and then QB coach in 1996-97, is now the offensive coordinator at Indiana State working for Trent Miles, who was Washington’s running backs coach the last three years before taking over at ISU.
Diedrick and Miles were each assistants at Notre Dame under Willingham but Diedrick was not asked to come to Seattle with Willingham and spent the last three years working in the CFL. Diedrick says in the story that Marques Tuiasosopo started as a freshman at UW and I guess he’s right, though there were some extenuating circumstances.
As you may recall, Tui started the Oregon game that year when Brock Huard was injured against USC. That was the only game he started, making him still the only true freshman to start a game at QB for the Huskies (Carl Bonnell got a couple starts as a redshirt frosh in 2004 and Jake Locker all of last season as an RS-frosh, as well).
