What a difference a week can make.
Last Monday, we get word that Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian was heading south to become the head coach of USC. After taking over a Huskies program that was in disarray following the school’s first complete season without a single victory (0-12 overall), Sarkisian quickly brought stability to the program. In his first season as head coach, the Huskies finished 5-7 overall, narrowly missing a bowl game. The next three seasons all yielded the same result as the team finished 7-5 overall. This year, hopes were high that Washington could make some noise in the PAC-12 North behind the arm of senior quarterback Keith Price and the legs of junior running back Bishop Sankey. Despite the team stumbling through a difficult midseason stretch—in which they played a murderer’s row of Stanford, Oregon, and Arizona State—the Huskies finished 8-4 overall.no comments no comments
