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 entirely in-cludes ve new members in 2012, meaning hal o the 10 ull-time coaches are intheir rst season at the UW. Nearly all o the nine ull-time assistant coaches havesome sort o tie to the Northwest and many played or then-Pac-10 ootball pro-grams. The oensive side o the ball is led by newcomer Eric Kiesau, the oensivecoordinator and quarterbacks coach who came to the UW rom Caliornia. A or-mer QB at Portland State, Kiesau spent the last decade at either Cal or Colorado.He joins three oensive coaches who have been at the UW since Steve Sarkisianwas hired. Associate head coach - oense and running backs coach Joel Thomas,in his ourth year at UW, grew up in Port Angeles, Wash., and is a member o theIdaho Athletic Hall o Fame. He is still the Vandals’ all-time leader in carries, rush-ing yards and rushing TDs. Fellow Idaho grad Dan Cozzetto is in his ourth seasonas the UW’s run game coordinator and oensive line coach. Cozzetto grew up inSpokane, Wash., and was also the Washington line coach in 2003. He came tothe UW rom Arizona State. UW pass game coordinator and wide receivers coachJimmie Daugherty played QB at Missouri and spent most o his coaching careerprior to the UW at the University o San Diego. Assistant head coach, recruitingcoordinator and special teams coordinator Johnny Nansen is a ourth-year coachat the UW. He grew up in Long Beach, Cali., but played ootball at WashingtonState and spent the previous ve years at Idaho beore moving over to the UW.The our deensive coaches are all new to the UW this year. Coordinator JustinWilcox grew up in Junction City, Ore., and spent our years as a deensive backat Oregon. He came to the UW rom Tennessee and, prior to that, coached atBoise State, among others. His ormer college roommate, Peter Sirmon, overseesthe UW linebackers. A our-year starter at Oregon and a native o Walla Walla,Wash., Sirmon played in the NFL or seven years beore moving on to coaching.Ater stints at Central Washington and Oregon, he worked with Wilcox at Tennes-see beore coming to Seattle. The new deensive backs coach is Keith Heyward, aour-year letterman at Oregon State. An L.A.-area native, Heyward has coached atOSU six o the last seven seasons. Deensive line coach and deensive run gamecoordinator Tosh Lupoi had spent his entire playing and coaching career at Calior-nia beore moving to the UW this past o-season. A ormer Cal deensive lineman,he’d coached the line at his alma mater the last our years ater two seasons asa GA. Washington also has two returning grad assistants and two new ones.Washington’s two returners are Jordan Paopao and Donte Williams. Paopao, whoworks with the tight ends, was a our-year starting center at the University o SanDiego while Williams, who prepped at Culver City High in the Los Angeles area,was a deensive back at Syracuse. The newcomers are Eric Guttorp, a Seattlenative who wrapped up his career as a UW kicker last season, and Andrew Rolin,who played and coached at USD alongside Paopao and Dougherty beore headingnorth to Seattle this o-season.
While the Huskies’ ull-time coaching stadoesn’t include any UW graduates, nearly all o them have some tie to the stateor to the Northwest and a surprising number have actually played or their almamater against the Dawgs. Head man Steve Sarkisian’s only loss in a 14-1 seasonas a senior at BYU in 1996 came to the UW at Husky Stadium. New deensivecoaches Justin Wilcox and Peter Sirmon both aced the Huskies during their playingcareers at Oregon rom 1996 to 1999. Former Washington State linebacker JohnnyNansen, now the Huskies’ recruiting coordinator and special teams coach, was onthe opposite sideline or several Apple Cups in the early-to-mid 1990s and newdeensive backs coach Keith Heyward played in a ew barnburners vs. the UW orOregon State rom 1997 to 2000. More recently, deensive line coach Tosh Lupoisquared o with the Huskies during his time as a d-lineman at Caliornia at thestart o the last decade. And while neither oensive line coach Dan Cozzetto norrunning backs coach Joel Thomas ever aced Washington during their careers atIdaho, both grew up in the Evergreen State. Finally, new oensive coordinator EricKiesau has also never played against Washington, but did play his college ootballjust across the border at Portland State.
 Washington holds a 58-34-4 record in theall-time series against Oregon State, having won the 16 o the last 24 meetingsand 26 o the last 35, dating back to 1975. The series against the Beavers is thesecond-longest (to Stanord) active series in Washington ootball history in termso years and third-longest in terms o total meetings (to Oregon and WashingtonState). The teams rst met on Dec. 4, 1897, with Oregon State earning a 16-0 homewin. That game was Washington’s second-ever against a major college.

In 2006 inSeattle, QB Isaiah Stanback’s college career came to an end with a devastating ootinjury and the Huskies’ lost, 27-17. In 2005, the Beavers got six eld goals romSerna in an 18-10 win over Washington. In 2004 at Husky Stadium, OSU picked upits second win in our seasons against the UW with a 29-14 win, the Beavers rstat Husky Stadium since 1985. Serna kicked a then-school-record ve eld goals toprovide the winning margin. In 2003 in Corvallis, Charles Frederick piled up a school-record 371 all-purpose yards, scoring three touchdowns, as the Huskies cruised toa 38-17 win. The Beavers’ next-most recent win (prior to 2004) in the series camein Corvallis on Nov. 10, 2001, when the Beavers broke a 13-game losing streak tothe Huskies. That day, an unranked OSU team trounced No. 8 Washington, 49-24,the rst Beaver win (home or away) since the 1985 Husky Stadium game. Severalother recent meetings have come down to the wire. In 2000, Ryan Cesca missed agame-tying eld goal in the closing seconds as the Huskies held on or a 33-30 win.In 1998, the Beavers went or a two-point conversion with no time let.
