TUCSON--Brent Myers, Arizona's tight ends coach since January 19, resigned his position abruptly this week to take the offensive line coach job at Washington.

Myers, 39, worked closely with fellow Arizona coaches in developing UA's offensive package in the past months and has been on the field coaching since Arizona opened spring practice March 4.

He left Tucson to join the Huskies staff yesterday.

Arizona head coach Dick Tomey said he wishes Myers well, even though the timing -- with the team having five more spring practice sessions remaining -- isn't the best.

As for Myers' inside view of Arizona's schemes and its worth to Washington, an Arizona opponent in Seattle Nov. 4, Tomey said, This type of a thing happens all of the time, so it's not going to make a difference. By the time we play each other, they know what we are going to do and we'll know what they're going to do.

Tomey said he'd wait until after spring ball to hire a replacement for Myers, who is from the state of Washington and played and coached at Eastern Washington. This was certainly a tough decision, said Myers. "But for the 19 years that I've been coaching, I've always wanted to be a Pac-10 offensive line coach, and now I have that chance.
