The ollowing stations make upthe 18-station Washington IMG CollegeNetwork, covering three states:
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 prolic 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 nished 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 nal 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 rst season, 2009, he seemed to prove that he was right. Washing-ton, which posted a winless season or the rst time in school history the yearbeore Sarkisian signed on, surged to a 5-7 record in 2009, an improvement o vevictories 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 rst 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ciency rating ranked third on the all-time NCAA list. As a senior in1996, he led the nation in passing eciency (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 rst-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 fve new members in 2012, meaning hal o the 10 ull-timecoaches are in their frst 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 fve 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 USC have played one another81 times since the series began in 1923. The Trojans hold a 49-28-4 series advantage,although the Huskies have gone a closer 9-9-1 over the last 19. Washington won itsrst-ever meeting against the Trojans, beating USC, 22-0, in Seattle in 1923. Whenthe series re-started in 1927, USC handed the Huskies six straight deeats beoreWashington reeled o ve in a row. The longest streak either way in the seriesbegan in 1965, when the Trojans beat Washington or the rst time o 10 straightwins. The Huskies are 17-19-4 in the 40 games played in Husky Stadium and 11-29-0against the Trojans in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Last season, Washingtonposted its second straight victory via late eld goal as Erik Folk connected rom32 yards to beat USC, 32-31, on the nal play o the game. In 2009 in Seattle,Washington handed No. 3 USC a 16-13 win as Folk connected on a 22-yard eldgoal with three seconds let to cap the game-winning drive. Three years ago in L.A.,USC blanked the Dawgs, 56-0, as then-coordinator Steve Sarkisian's oense rackedup 488 yards while then-USC deensive coordinator Nick Holt held the Huskies othe scoreboard. Four seasons ago, the No. 1 Trojans escaped Seattle with a 27-24win, the second o two straight close matchups. USC overcame three turnovers and16 penalties. USC out-gained Washington with 460 yards o total oense to theHuskies' 190, but only won the game by three points. In 2006 in L.A., the Huskiesdropped a 26-20 heartbreaker to the No. 3 Trojans as time ran out with the Huskies'on the Trojans' 15-yard line. The year beore in Seattle, the No. 1 Trojans used a23-point second quarter to break open a previously close game in a 51-24 win. In2004, the top-ranked Trojans handed the UW a 38-0 loss, breaking the Huskies'271-game scoring streak, the longest in Division I-A at the time.
The Washington coaching sta main tie to USC isobvious as Husky head coach Steve Sarkisian was hired away rom the Trojans,where he spent seven o the previous eight seasons (all but 2004). Sarkisian andUSC head coach Lane Kin worked together on Pete Carroll’s sta during manyo those years. Husky head strength coach Ivan Lewis and director o ootballoperations Jared Blank all worked or the Trojans beore being hired by Sarkisian.Many o Kin’s current sta at USC spent time on Carroll’s Trojans sta along withSarkisian and the other UW sta with USC ties. USC d-line coach Shawn Howeand UW deensive coordinator Justin Wilcox worked on the same sta at Tennes-see in 2010. As ar as players go, the only Washingtonians on the USC roster arereshmen Zach Banner (Lakes) and Alex Wood (Mercer Island). However, as is thecase each year, a good deal o UW and USC players have played with or againstone another in high school due to the number o Huskies rom the L.A. area. TheHuskies roster includes 34 players rom (somewhat loosely-dened) southernCaliornia: CB Brandon Beaver (Compton), QB Derrick Brown (Winchester), TBJesse Callier (Downey), PK Travis Coons (Alta Loma), TB Deontae Cooper (Perris),DE Talia Crichton (Lakewood), OL Mike Criste (Mission Viejo), CB Gregory Ducre(Los Angeles), LB Princeton Fuimaono (Long Beach), WR Marvin Hall (Los Angeles),OL Taylor Hindy (West Hills), DE Andrew Hudson (Redlands), WR James Johnson(Valley Center), OL Erik Kohler (Camarillo), LB Cory Littleon (Spring Valley), CBAdam Long (Los Angeles), TB Ryan McDaniel (Torrance), WR Jaydon Mickens (LosAngeles), S Sean Parker (Los Angeles), WR Joshua Perkins (Cerritos), TB/FB DezdenPetty (Carson), QB Keith Price (Compton), LB Blake Rodgers (Coto de Caza), S WillShamburger (Compton), DE Josh Shirley (Fontana), WR Kevin Smith (Compton), OLColin Tanigawa (Pasadena), LB John Timu (Long Beach), OL Siosia Tuunga (LongBeach), DL Damion Turpin (Compton), LB Thomas Tutogi (Chula Vista), DB DarienWashington (Norwalk), WR Dwayne Washington (Lakewood), DE Corey Waller(Long Beach) and QB Erik Wilson (Redondo Beach). Lastly, UW LB Nate Fellner andUSC punter Tyler Negrette are cousins.
