In a requently-told tale, Husky ootball coach Steve Sarki-sian recalls his days as a young assistant traveling to ace Washington at HuskyStadium. During the drive across Lake Washington, with the iconic home o theDawgs towering ahead, Sarkisian marveled aloud at the city, the stadium and theatmosphere surrounding the UW program. A decade or so later, Sarkisian is incharge o the Washington ootball program he was admiring that day. And in justtwo years, he has re-established the kind o tough, exciting environment that wasthen, and is again now, so closely associated with the Husky ootball. The 2011season, Sarkisian’s third as head coach, provided more highlights or his up-and-coming program. The Husky oense posted one o its most prolifc seasons ever,scoring 434 points over the course o the season, the most by a UW squad sincethe 1991 national championship team and the second-most in school history. TheHuskies scored nearly 12 more points per game than they did the previous year.They also had marked improvement in passing yards (65 more yards per game)and total oense (47 more yards per game), while the team’s third-down percent-age improved vastly over the previous season, rom 32 to 46 percent. Sarkisiancoached his team to a third straight win over Washington State in the annualApple Cup to remain undeeated against the UW’s in-state rival and to wrap up a7-5 regular-season record and 5-4 mark in the Pac-12 North. The Huskies secureda berth in the Valero Alamo Bowl, the No. 2 game in the Pac-12 bowl lineup. In2010, Sarkisian’s second season in Seattle, the Huskies made another clear steporward. The Dawgs went 7-6 overall and fnished third in the Pac-10 Coner-ence with a 5-4 record. Then, in the Holiday Bowl, Washington provided one othe bowl season’s top games, beating an 18th-ranked Nebraska squad, 19-7. Thewin over the Cornhuskers was the last o a series o exciting, gutsy victories in2010. The season included three Husky wins decided on the very last play o thegame (Oregon State, USC and Cal), plus another in which the winning score cameinside the fnal minute (WSU). Sarkisian was introduced as the new head coacho the Washington ootball team on Dec. 8, 2008. From the start, Sarkisian madeit clear that he didn’t think it would take long to turn the program around and getit back to the high level o success that UW ootball has enjoyed throughout itshistory. In his frst season, 2009, he seemed to prove that he was right. Washing-ton, which posted a winless season or the frst time in school history the yearbeore Sarkisian signed on, surged to a 5-7 record in 2009, an improvement o fvevictories over the previous year. No BCS-conerence school in the nation couldboast such improvement in terms o wins in 2009. And, Sarkisian’s Husky squadpulled o that eat against a schedule that included 10 opponents who ended theseason bowl-eligible. Sarkisian came to the UW with a wealth o experience as aquarterbacks coach and oensive coordinator. His string o success is nearly un-precedented as, during his time at USC, he coached two Heisman Trophy winnersand oversaw one o the nation’s most consistent and dominant oenses. Sarkisianspent 2007 and 2008 as the Trojans’ assistant head coach and oensive coordina-tor. He had also previously served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach(2005-06), quarterbacks coach (2002-03) and as an oensive assistant (2001) atUSC, or a total o seven seasons there. During his seven seasons as a mem-ber o the Trojans’ sta, the team posted a combined 74-15 record. As oensivecoordinator, his record was 22-3. Aside rom his various roles at USC, Sarkisianalso spent one season as quarterbacks coach or the Oakland Raiders in 2004 andas QBs coach at El Camino College in Torrance, Cali., in 2000, his frst coachingjob. Sarkisian starred at the quarterback position at the prep, collegiate and prolevels. Ater his standout career at Brigham Young University, he was played orthe Saskatchewan Roughriders o the Canadian Football League or three sea-sons (1997-99). He had a record-setting two-year (1995-96) career at BYU, playingunder legendary coach Lavell Edwards. Sarkisian completed 549-o-824 passes(66.6 percent) or 7,755 yards and 55 touchdowns in his career. His 162.0 careerpassing efciency rating ranked third on the all-time NCAA list. As a senior in1996, he led the nation in passing efciency (173.6, No. 7 all-time) as the WesternAthletic Conerence champion Cougars went 14-1 and won the 1997 Cotton Bowl.He was the WAC Oensive Player o the Year in 1996, and earned second-teamAll-America honors. Sarkisian transerred to BYU rom El Camino Junior College,where he played two seasons (1993-94). He was a frst-team Junior College All-America selection as a sophomore and earned all-conerence honors in 1993 as areshman. He also played baseball at El Camino in 1993. He originally enrolled atUSC as a baseball player, spending the all o 1992 on the Trojans’ roster beoretranserring. Sarkisian was a standout ootball and baseball player at West Tor-rance (Cali.) High. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology rom BYU in 1997ater receiving his associate’s degree in general studies rom El Camino in 1994.Sarkisian was born March 8, 1974. He and his wie, Stephanie, have two daugh-ters, Ashley and Taylor, and a son, Brady.

Washington’s assistant coaching sta returns en-tirely includes ve new members in 2012, meaning hal o the 10 ull-timecoaches are in their rst season at the UW. Nearly all o the nine ull-time assistant coaches have some sort o tie to the Northwest and manyplayed or then-Pac-10 ootball programs. The oensive side o the ballis led by newcomer Eric Kiesau, the oensive coordinator and quarter-backs coach who came to the UW rom Caliornia. A ormer QB at PortlandState, Kiesau spent the last decade at either Cal or Colorado. He joinsthree oensive coaches who have been at the UW since Steve Sarkisianwas hired. Associate head coach - oense and running backs coach JoelThomas, in his ourth year at UW, grew up in Port Angeles, Wash., and is amember o the Idaho Athletic Hall o Fame. He is still the Vandals’ all-timeleader in carries, rushing yards and rushing TDs. Fellow Idaho grad DanCozzetto is in his ourth season as the UW’s run game coordinator and o-ensive line coach. Cozzetto grew up in Spokane, Wash., and was also theWashington line coach in 2003. He came to the UW rom Arizona State.UW pass game coordinator and wide receivers coach Jimmie Daughertyplayed QB at Missouri and spent most o his coaching career prior to theUW at the University o San Diego. Assistant head coach, recruiting co-ordinator and special teams coordinator Johnny Nansen is a ourth-yearcoach at the UW. He grew up in Long Beach, Cali., but played ootballat Washington State and spent the previous ve years at Idaho beoremoving over to the UW. The our deensive coaches are all new to the UWthis year. Coordinator Justin Wilcox grew up in Junction City, Ore., andspent our years as a deensive back at Oregon. He came to the UW romTennessee and, prior to that, coached at Boise State, among others. Hisormer college roommate, Peter Sirmon, oversees the UW linebackers. Aour-year starter at Oregon and a native o Walla Walla, Wash., Sirmonplayed in the NFL or seven years beore moving on to coaching. Aterstints at Central Washington and Oregon, he worked with Wilcox at Ten-nessee beore coming to Seattle. The new deensive backs coach is KeithHeyward, a our-year letterman at Oregon State. An L.A.-area native, Hey-ward has coached at OSU six o the last seven seasons. Deensive linecoach and deensive run game coordinator Tosh Lupoi had spent his entireplaying and coaching career at Caliornia beore moving to the UW thispast o-season. A ormer Cal deensive lineman, he’d coached the line athis alma mater the last our years ater two seasons as a GA. Washingtonalso has two returning grad assistants and two new ones. Washington’stwo returners are Jordan Paopao and Donte Williams. Paopao, who workswith the tight ends, was a our-year starting center at the University oSan Diego while Williams, who prepped at Culver City High in the LosAngeles area, was a deensive back at Syracuse. The newcomers are EricGuttorp, a Seattle native who wrapped up his career as a UW kicker lastseason, and Andrew Rolin, who played and coached at USD alongsidePaopao and Dougherty beore heading north to Seattle this o-season.
While the Huskies’ ull-timecoaching sta doesn’t include any UW graduates, nearly all o them havesome tie to the state or to the Northwest and a surprising number haveactually played or their alma mater against the Dawgs. Head man SteveSarkisian’s only loss in a 14-1 season as a senior at BYU in 1996 cameto the UW at Husky Stadium. New deensive coaches Justin Wilcox andPeter Sirmon both aced the Huskies during their playing careers at Oregonrom 1996 to 1999. Former Washington State linebacker Johnny Nansen,now the Huskies’ recruiting coordinator and special teams coach, was onthe opposite sideline or several Apple Cups in the early-to-mid 1990s andnew deensive backs coach Keith Heyward played in a ew barnburnersvs. the UW or Oregon State rom 1997 to 2000. More recently, deensiveline coach Tosh Lupoi squared o with the Huskies during his time as ad-lineman at Caliornia at the start o the last decade. And while neitheroensive line coach Dan Cozzetto nor running backs coach Joel Thomasever aced Washington during their careers at Idaho, both grew up in theEvergreen State. Finally, new oensive coordinator Eric Kiesau has alsonever played against Washington, but did play his college ootball justacross the border at Portland State.
Washington and San Diego State havesquared o just twice in their history. In 1982, the No. 1-ranked Huskiesimproved to 4-0 with a 46-25 win over SDSU in ront o 55,528 at HuskyStadium on Oct. 2, 1982. The Huskies would stretch their record to 7-0beore alling at Stanord. In 1997, Washington was highly ranked onceagain when the Aztecs visited on the second Saturday o the season, Sept.13. A second-ranked Dawgs team held San Diego State to 196 yards ototal oense en route to a 36-3 victory. Brock Huard completed 16-o-26passes or 313 yards, our touchdowns and no interceptions with JeromePathon catching eight o those passes or 182 yards and two scores. SDSU'sAz-Zahir Hakim caught seven passes or 108 yards.
Washington has playedall but three (Colorado State, New Mexico and UNLV) o the 10 schoolsthat comprise the Mountain West Conerence in ootball this season. Alltotaled, the Huskies are 12-8 against current MWC members. Here's thebreakdown: 2-6 vs. Air Force; 1-0 vs. Boise State; 2-1 vs. Fresno State; 3-1vs. Hawai'i; 2-0 vs. San Diego State; and 2-0 vs. Wyoming.
New UW deensive line coach Tosh Lupoiand San Diego State oensive coordinator Andy Ludwig spent the 2009and 2010 seasons on the same sta at Caliornia. Several members othe UW coaching sta (Jimmie Dougherty and GAs Jordan Paopao andAndrew Rolin) played and/or coached at the University o San Diego, butdidn’t cross over with any o the SDSU sta. Washington head coach SteveSarkisian was very briefy on the coaching sta at San Diego State in 2002beore moving to a ull-time job at USC. As ar as players go, Washingtonhas two players who prepped in San Diego County: James Johnson (ValleyCenter), Cory Littleton (Spring Valley/Mount Miguel). SDSU’s roster includestwo Washingtonians: reshman Connor Black (Wenatchee) and sophomoreAaron Boesch (Oak Harbor). Seeing as many players rom each team’s rosterwent to high school in Caliornia, it’s no surprise that members o the twoteams have played with one another at the prep (or junior college) level.Those include: UW’s Keith Price and Will Shamburger and SDSU’s LeonMcFadden (St. John Bosco HS); UW’s Gregory Ducre and SDSU’s PierreRomain and Marcus Andrews (Crenshaw HS); UW’s Marvin Hall and JaydonMickens and SDSU’s Vaness Harris (Dorsey HS); UW’s Thomas Tutogi andSDSU’s Andrew Feaster (Southwestern JC); UW’s Knight Laird and CylerMiles and SDSU’s Jimmy Miller, Arthur Flores and Alec Johnson (MullenHS); UW’s Scott Lawyer and Cleveland Walker and SDSU’s Bruce Leaupepe(Oak Grove HS); UW’s Johnson and SDSU’s Daniel Brunskill (Valley CenterHS); UW’s Mike Criste and SDSU’s Austin Maass (Mission Viejo HS); UW’sLittleton and SDSU’s Malcolm Jackson (Mount Miguel HS); and UW’s Der-rick Brown and SDSU’s Jon Sanchez (Vista Murrieta HS).
The Huskies are 87-28-5 in home openers (whetherthe rst game o the season or not), a percentage o .746. (Washingtondid not play any home games in the 1890 or 1893 seasons.) That markincludes a 28-game streak o home-opener wins that ran rom 1908 to 1935.Beore alling to Air Force in the 1999 home opener, Washington had won13 straight such games since alling to Oklahoma State on Sept. 7, 1985.
HOME vs.
Washington has been very tough to beatin home, non-conerence games over the last couple o decades or so. Goingback to (and including) the 1981 season, the Huskies have posted a 53-13record against non-Pac-10/Pac-12 oes in Husky Stadium. Those 13 losses
