Steve Sarkisian's USC career ended this afternoon with the Trojans' 38-24 Rose Bowl win over Penn State.
Now all Sarkisian has to do is hop a flight back to Seattle, finally free to devote all of his attention to rebuilding the Huskies. My understanding is that he was expecting to return Friday.
If you watched the game, you know that Sarkisian got a lot of face time on the broadcast, and his move to UW was mentioned several times.
And if you liked his play calling -- or didn't -- prepare to see something similar next fall at Husky Stadium.
Never miss a local story.
One of the first questions I asked Sarkisian in his first UW press conference was if what he was doing at USC is what he plans to do offensively at UW.
His answer: "The offense will very similar (to USC), obviously we'll play to the strengths of what we have, whether is offensive line, running back, quarterback, wide receiver. For the most part, the system will remain the same, but every game is different. There will be some games we're going to pound the rock, some games we're going to have to throw it 40 times to win, but the goal is the same and that is to win football games. That's what we're going to try to do."
