Former UW guard Kyle Benn is currently serving as an interim offensive line coach this spring, after working for two seasons as a graduate assistant coach for the Husky offense. Benn was a four-year letterman at Washington from 1998-2001. He served as a team captain during his senior season.
During the 2001 season he was one of just two Pac-10 players to be named a first-team member to both the All-Pac-10 team and the Pac-10 All-Academic squad. He was also recognized as a Region VII Academic All-American.
Benn was Washington's starting center from 1999-2001. He helped the Huskies lead the Pac-10 in rushing as a sophomore and junior and to the 2001 Rose Bowl championship.
A native of Edmonds, Benn majored in business at Washington. He was a free agent selection by the Tennessee Titans following the 2002 NFL draft. His younger brother, Jason, is a sophomore tight end on this year's Washington team.
