Seahawks Hire Gilbertson

From Greg Bishop at the Seattle Times:

Gilbertson is best remembered for his two-year stint as coach of the Huskies. He replaced the embattled Rick Neuheisel in 2003 and led the Huskies to a 6-6 season. The Huskies were 1-10 last season.

Gilbertson, a former coach at California and Idaho, won't move far from his local roots. He graduated from Snohomish High School in 1966, went to college at Central Washington and Western Washington and started coaching at UW as a graduate assistant to Don James in 1976.

Gilbertson coached as a Seahawks assistant from 1996 to 1998 under Dennis Erickson.
