University of Washington HEADLINES
Beneath the surface of Washington Huskies fans’ excitement about the hire of new football coach Chris Petersen is a unifying concern: What will become of defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox and defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi?
From all corners, the reaction to Washington’s football coaching hire – overwhelmingly positive reaction, this time – seemed to circle back to the same common thread.
Just a theory, but I'd bet Steve Sarkisian helped Chris Petersen decide to take the job coaching Washington Husky football.
It appears Washington’s coaching search will involve two candidates whose names have been connected with the vacancy since Steve Sarkisian left on Monday for USC.
There are multiple reports this morning, including those from ESPN and CBS Sports, that Chris Petersen has agreed to leave Boise State to become the next coach of the Washington Huskies.

The University of Washington’s football coaching search remains in progress, though the Huskies at least know who will coach their bowl game. And it’s a familiar name.

A pair of Washington Huskies assistants will reportedly interview for the vacant head coaching job.

Steve Sarkisian, hired in December of 2008 to resurrect a program coming off a 0-12 season, has left the University of Washington to accept the head coaching position at USC.
According to a report by ESPN.com, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian interviewed over the weekend for the head coaching job at USC.
Steve Sarkisian said he’s excited to coach the Washington Huskies in one more game, whichever bowl they’re sent to, whichever team they’re paired with, wherever the game will be played.
