Add Robb Akey to the list of new Redskins coaches with time at Northern Arizona University.

The newly announced defensive line coach spent three seasons there as the defensive coordinator, the same time period of new defensive coordinator Joe Barry, while just missing offensive line coach Bill Callahan’s stint there with the Lumberjacks.

The school was a breeding ground for many NFL coaches and Akey has just recently added his name to that list, spending last year with the Vikings.

Like many of his peers, Akey’s background in football started as a player.

Akey, raised in Colorado Springs, Colo., played on the defensive line for Weber State under head coach Mike Price where he was an all-conference selection as a defensive end during his senior year. He also played linebacker and tight end when needed and is the Wildcats’ career sack leader.

Price offered him his first job as an assistant coach for the defensive line. After five years there he moved on to Northern Arizona and then to Washington  State, where he racked up three 10-victory seasons, three top-10 finishes and coached an individual and defense that led the nation in quarterback sacks.

“I’ve been up here nine years, and I think it’s the perfect place to build a family,” said Akey, who has two sons – Jack and Daniel. “I also think it’s the perfect place to build a family of a football team. We have the ability to eliminate the distractions of the city, so when we bring players in here they can focus on what’s important to them and that’s getting their degree and being the best player they can be.”

Akey spent six seasons as the head coach of the University of Idaho before moving onto the Vikings last season to help with their defensive line.

During his stint in the Palouse, Akey helped institute a tradition where players would run onto the field sprinting with the American flag ahead of them. It was a salute to always remember those serving overseas fighting for our country.

But, through all of our digging, this might best encapsulate the enthusiasm Akey has for football.

Check out this clip below, where Akey jumps up to meet one of his players for a mid-air celebration. Then watch what follows.

I don’t think he’ll have the same issue with Redskins players.
