Former University of North Carolina quarterback and Puyallup native Luke Huard is in his first season as a graduate assistant for the University of Washington program.

Huard began his coaching career as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Washington High School upon graduation from North Carolina in 2002. He then spent four seasons as the head football coach at Interlake High School, where he led the program to its first winning season in 10 years in 2004. That season, Interlake set school records in passing and total offense en route to a 6-4 record.

He played in seven games and started for as a freshman for the Tar Heels in 1999. He completed 29 of his 75 pass attempts for 256 yards with two interceptions and a touchdown.
