Former Washington receiver D’Andre Goodwin will remain on the UW staff as a graduate assistant coach, and two new graduate assistants have been added to the staff.

Ben Thienes follows UW coach Chris Petersen from Boise State, where Thienes had been a defensive graduate assistant the past two years. Joshua Taufalele, a former offensive lineman at New Mexico, also joins the staff as an offensive GA.

Conor Knowles, a GA for UW in 2013, is also listed on UW’s updated coaching roster.

“Coach Passion,” meanwhile, is heading to USC. Former Bellevue High standout Danny Razore had spent the past two seasons on the UW staff (first as an undergraduate assistant, then last season as a graduate assistant), and become a popular figure in the UW locker room, particularly among the defensive backs he helped coached. Razore said he had a chance to remain at UW, but chose instead to reunite with Steve Sarkisian in Los Angeles. Razore, 24, said he was “humbled” by the opportunities and thanked the UW players and fans.

UPDATE: Former UW linebacker Brandon Huppert says he also plans to stay on as a Husky GA, after also receiving an offer to head to USC.

Elsewhere, Lane Kiffin to Alabama. It’s happening. Yes, it’s happened.
