Husky Rugby Welcomes Coaches Will Wheaton, David Carpenter, and Michael Hoff. Tyler Siceloff spent a year as Huskies HC before moving on to other pursuits – thank you for your contribution Tyler! Will Wheaton joined the club in Fall 2018 and is now acting Head Coach, and will be assisted by two coaches this Fall: David Carpenter (UW Attack Coach 1984-1991), and Michael Hoff, Forwards Coach.
Wheaton has brought in Saracens guest coaches Mona Fale Sa’u and Ryan “Kirk” Youngman (Husky Alumni, and now a signed Seattle Seawolves player). We’ve also had guest coaches from the Seattle Seawolves - JP Smith: Scrum/Fly half, and Brad Tucker: Flanker. It’s exciting times with the Seawolves success and rugby growth in Seattle and the region.
The Huskies also anticipate continued assistance from forwards coaches Louie Henson (Saracens/Seawolves) and Henry Hall (Saracens), and thank them for their help so far. The current squad of Huskies is young and motivated to learn, setting the stage for a powerful side over the next couple years. Each session with the guest coaches has had a noticeable impact on the subsequent games.
