Washington will have a holdover on its football coaching staff after all.

New coach Chris Petersen has completed his first staff at UW by retaining Jordan Paopao as the Huskies’ tight-ends coach, a position Paopao held at UW in 2013. Before that, Paopao had served as a graduate assistant for two seasons on Steve Sarkisian’s staff, overseeing tight ends both seasons.

Petersen had offered the tight-ends coaching position to Marques Tuiasosopo, who last week accepted an offer from Sarkisian to become the USC associate head coach/tight ends coach.

Petersen and his new staff will hold a news conference Tuesday morning at UW.

Paopao came to the UW from Stanford, where he served as a recruiting assistant under Jim Harbaugh, who coached him during his playing career at the University of San Diego. At USD, Paopao was a three-time first-team All-Pioneer Football League selection and three-time Mid-Major All-American. He was a four-year starter at center and helped the Toreros to a pair of 11-1 seasons.
