Quick notes from Steve Sarkisian conference call

In the process of transcribing the interview right now ... quickly ...

Sarkisian said the decision to fire Nick Holt was extremely difficult but something that needed to be done.

He said Justin Wilcox will employ more of a 3-4 look with a stand up defensive end.

Colin Porter will undergo shoulder surgery. Travis Feeney had shoulder surgery and Kevin Smith had knee surgery.

The final coaching hire will be a defensive line coach to help Johnny Nansen, who will focus on special teams a little more. Kind of fits, Tosh Lupoi doesn't it.

Erik Folk did not get a sixth-year of eligibility.

Johri Fogerson did get a medical redshirt and will have another year of eligibility.
