It’s time to announce some more personal news in this space —I am changing jobs at the Seattle Times and will now cover the Seahawks, helping to replace the great Danny O’Neil, who left recently for a gig at 710 ESPN Seattle.
I wasn’t necessarily looking to change beats here. But it is something lots of others have done at the paper, covering one team for a while, and then another.
I’ve covered Washington football since 1997, having attended every single game the Huskies have played in that time (even the 1998 O’ahu Bowl, which was attended by maybe 572 people). It was a really fun run — no matter what school you attend, for a sports journalist any major college beat is a great gig and I really enjoyed it, and the people I met along the way. It’ll be weird not going there every day in the fall, and not heading to Eugene and Tucson and every other Pac-12 outpost.
But it felt like time for a new challenge.
You can be assured the Times will make a great hire to fill this space, and as for me I will just be a couple clicks over.
The switch doesn’t officially happen for a few weeks yet, so I plan to come back to this space with some final thoughts on the last 16 years of UW football.
And as always, thanks for reading.
