      REDSKINS NAME ROBB AKEY AS DEFENSIVE LINE COACH

      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Robb Akey as Defensive Line Coach.

      Akey joins the Redskins with 26 years of coaching experience. Last year, he served as the assistant defensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings, helping defensive end Everson Griffin finish fourth in the NFC and second among NFC defensive linemen in sacks (12.0). His background includes 25 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level, including serving as head coach at the University of Idaho for six seasons from 2007-12. He led the Vandals to their second bowl game in school history in 2009.

      Akey spent eight seasons at Washington State, where he mentored the defensive line from 1999-2002 and served as the team’s defensive coordinator from 2003-06. While coaching the Cougars, Akey led defensive tackle Rien Long to the Outland Trophy, given annually to the nation’s top interior lineman, in 2002. That season, Akey helped the Washington State defense set a school record for sacks with 55.

      Akey’s coaching career started in 1988 at his alma mater, Weber State. He coached seven seasons at Weber State in various roles from 1988-94 before coaching at Northern Arizona from 1995-98. He played tight end, outside linebacker and defensive end during his four-year career at Weber State, finishing his career as the school leader in sacks and earning All-Big Sky first team honors as a senior in 1987.

      Akey attended Wasson H.S. in Colorado Springs, Colo. He and wife, Molly, have two sons, Jack and Daniel.
