Jordan Paopao Is UW's New TE Coach

The former Graduate Assistant got promoted to a full time gig today.

Otto Greule Jr

This is part of a big shakeup that looks like this:

Joel Thomas left to Arkansas, leaving UW with a vacancy at RB coach.

Jordan Paopao gets promoted and becomes UW's TE coach.

Johnny Nansen slides over to RB coach and vacates his responsibilities as Recruiting Coordinator (though I'm unclear if he'll remain special teams coordinator, I would guess yes). EDIT: Yes, he is retaining that role

Peter Sirmon becomes UW's new Recruiting Coordinator -- and deservedly so.

So not a big shakeup in terms of new people, but some familiar faces getting moved around and getting new titles. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a fan of the move, calling Paopao "the best TE coach in the country."
