A Historic Season For  the University of Washington Football Team

The Coach of the Year award comes after DeBoer led the Huskies to a 13-0 season and a Pac-12 Championship. The  Washington Huskies will face Texas in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 with a spot in the championship game on the line. The success on the field this season for the UW football team also led to their Quarterback, Michael Penix Jr, being nominated for a Heisman Trophy. However, Penix Jr would finish in the Heisman voting. Jayden Daniels of Lousiana State University would end up winning the 2023 Heisman Trophy.
