Former Washington football coach arrested

SEATTLE — Former Washington football coach Jim Lambright was arrested last week for investigation of domestic violence, according to Snohomish County court documents released Wednesday.

Lambright, 72, coached the Huskies for six seasons, starting in 1992, going 44-25-1. Before that, he was an assistant at the school for 24 years.

He was arrested June 18 and accused of assaulting his granddaughter, 23. The Snohomish County prosecutor's office said he has not been charged.

His granddaughter told sheriff's deputies Lambright grabbed her by the arms, according to a probable cause statement. Lambright told authorities he grabbed her to get her out of the house but did not hurt her and was sick of her attitude, according to court documents.

Lambright's wife, Lynne, told authorities he suffers from dementia.
