File this one under the "good for him" category. Former Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael is now an assistant coach at Sedro-Wooley High School in western Washington.

Lobbestael, or "The Lobster" as he is affectionately known by Coug fans, is reunited with his high school coach who helped him earn a state title with Oak Harbor.

"High school football is all about playing and having fun. It was something I loved doing and something I wanted to be involved with on the coaching end," Lobbestael told the Seattle Times.

Lobbestael currently works with quarterbacks and receivers.

Congratulations to him, and congratulations to Sedro-Wooley, who just got themselves a heckuva guy and a true Coug.
