The USC Trojans went shopping for a new boss in Seattle on Monday afternoon, hiring Washington's Steve Sarkisian to become their next head coach, according to ESPN sources.
Sarkisian was a longtime assistant at USC under Pete Carroll, and his success there led to his hiring at Washington in the first place. Though hard to swallow at first, Huskies fans have to understand why it would be hard for him to say no to the Trojans' offer.
If UW fans want to get mad, it should be over defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox, who, according to Dave Mahler of KJR radio, will reportedly follow Sarkisian to Southern California. Wilcox was the tentative favorite to replace Sarkisian before that news broke, and his absence throws this program into flux.
Where do the Huskies possibly go from here? Let's look at five potential names.
