SEATTLE (AP) - Washington coach Chris Petersen has announced that wide receivers coach Brent Pease will not be retained for next season and will not coach for the Huskies in their upcoming bowl game.

Petersen made the announcement Friday. Petersen said a “fresh start with the position group” was needed moving forward.

Pease spent two seasons coaching with the Huskies and had coached with Petersen at Boise State from 2006-11. Before rejoining Petersen at Washington, Pease spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Florida before being fired after the 2013 season.

Petersen had talked about wanting to see the Huskies wide receivers more plays for their quarterback each of the last two seasons.

Also Friday, Jeff Choate left as defensive line coach and special teams coordinator to take the head coaching position at Montana State.

The rest of Washington’s assistants coaches have contracts that expire in late January.
