SEATTLE (AP) — The Washington Huskies have promoted Bob Gregory to defensive coordinator.

This will be the third time in his coaching career that Gregory will be in charge of running a defense. 

Gregory's promotion comes after Pete Kwiatkowski surprisingly left Washington in January to take the position of defensive coordinator on Steve Sarkisian's staff at Texas. 

Gregory has been Washington's inside linebackers coach for the past seven seasons. 

He was previously a defensive coordinator at California from 2002 to 2009 and at Boise State in 2001.
