SEATTLE (AP) — Matt Lubick has returned to the Pac-12 at Washington, the assistant coach’s fourth job in three months after brief stops at two other Power Five conference teams since the end of last season. Washington coach Chris Petersen on Wednesday announced the addition of Lubick to his staff as wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator. Lubick spent the past four seasons at Oregon.
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A fishing club in Oregon is asking officials to ban jet-powered boat engines from a portion of the upper Rogue River. The Mail Tribune reports that the Medford-based Rogue Flyfishers Association and riverside landowner Greg Layton have filed a petition with the Oregon State Marine Board to ban jetboats from a 24-mile stretch of the river. It is an attempt to limit where Rogue Jet Boat Adventures owner Taylor Grimes can operate. The petitioners say traditional sports like drift boating, kayaking and fishing are threatened by Grimes’ operation. Grimes says a jetboat ban would cater to one or two particular groups.
