Steve Sarkisian is nine games into his fifth season as football coach at the University of Washington, and we’re still waiting for the Huskies to turn the corner.
When the Seattle Mariners introduced Lloyd McClendon as their new manager on Thursday, no question put to McClendon was more obvious than the initial question: What compelled you into wanting this job?
Future Pro Football Hall of Fame safety John Lynch, who covered the Seattle Seahawks’ dominant-in-all-phases performance Sunday as a TV booth analyst for Fox Sports, never ran out of superlatives.
The two interceptions Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau threw in the third quarter Saturday were not the primary reasons his team suffered a 59-7 clobbering at the hands of the Washington Huskies.
New Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon spent his childhood in Gary, Ind., birthplace of the fictional Harold Hill, the Music Man, and Michael Jackson, the music man so gifted he became known as the “King of Pop.”
