According to Adam Jude, from The Seattle Times, a trial date has been set for former University of Washington football coach Jim Lambright. The trail date, October 29th, was set after Lambright pleaded not guilty to a charge of fourth degree assault/domestic violence.

Jude writes, “According to court documents, Lambright, 72, did not object to a no-contact order being issued against him. The alleged victim, Lambright’s 23-year-old granddaughter, had requested a no-contact order, as had Lambright’s wife and another granddaughter.”

Lambright was arrested on June 18th following and altercation with his granddaughter at his Snohomish-area home.

Jude continues, “The 23-year-old granddaughter told deputies that Lambright yelled at her while she was there visiting her father. She said Lambright grabbed her arms, yanking her down to the floor. He then dragged her 5 feet before she managed to escape and run outside to call for help.”

In a statement made to Snohomish County sheriff deputies Lambright said he was “frustrated” and “sick of their [his granddaughters] attitude.”
