Lubick will replace Bush Hamdan, who left to become the Atlanta Falcons' quarterbacks coach.
In 2001, Lubick returned to Colorado State as their wide receivers coach from 2001-2004 and then took the same job for two years at Mississippi.
In 1995, Matt Lubick got his start in coaching as a student assistant coach and academic supervisor under his father at Colorado State.
After the OR staff was released following the 2016 football season, Lubick took a job at Baylor as the co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach.
Matt Lubick, who was sacked after four seasons as OR wide receivers coach as part of the purge of head coach Mark Helfrich, was hired Wednesday by University of Washington football coach Chris Petersen to the same position, plus sharing the offensive coordinator title with Jonathan Smith.
"I am excited to add Matt to our coaching staff", Petersen said in a press release.
Now, Lubick is back on the West Coast where he has spent the bulk of his coaching career.
Lubick was hired by Baylor head coach Matt Rhule in January to serve as co-offensive coordinator with Jeff Nixon. Washington will be his fourth Pac-12 coaching stop. Lubick was to be co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach. With stops at San Jose State, Oregon State and Arizona State before landing at Oregon in 2013, Lubick is considered a top recruiter in the western US, inking players like linebacker Vontaze Burfict and quarterback Brock Osweiler while at Arizona State, according to 247 Sports.
