Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian is expected to introduce several members of his football staff Tuesday afternoon.
One of the newcomers is expected to be Jim Michalczik, offensive line coach and assistant offensive coordinator at California, who will become offensive coordinator at UW.
"It was an incredibly tough decision," Michalczik told the Contra Costa (Calif.) TimesContra Costa (Calif.) Times. "Leaving the Bay Area, leaving these kids, leaving coach (Jeff) Tedford, who gave me the opportunity here. This is a pretty good opportunity. It was literally too good to turn down."
Michalczik is a native of Port Angeles, and he played at Washington State from 1986-88.
USC secondary coach Rocky Seto also is known to be weighing an offer from Sarkisian, perhaps to become defensive coordinator.
It is uncertain how many staff announcements will be made Tuesday. However, there are growing indications that no members of Tyrone Willingham's staff will be retained.
