Washington quarterbacks coach Marques Tuiasosopo has accepted an offer to become USC’s tight ends coach, the Seattle Times reported on Sunday.

Tuiasosopo, who served as UW’s interim coach in its Fight Hunger Bowl win over BYU on Friday night, will reunite with Steve Sarkisian, who was hired away from Washington to became USC’s head coach in early December. Sarkisian hired Tuiasosopo at Washington last January.

New Washington coach Chris Petersen wanted Tuiasosopo to stay on his staff, but is now expected to pick former Boise State quarterbacks coach Jonathan Smith to fill that slot.

USC’s staff is quickly starting to look like Washington South. Along with Tuiasosopo, the Trojans have also added¬†Justin Wilcox,¬†Johnny Nansen, Keith Heyward and Peter Sirmons to their staff.

    I understand Sark wanting to surround himself with coaches he’s comfortable with but hard to imagine those he’s bringing in are going to do a better job than those they’re replacing, in regards to Baxter, Pendergast and Robinson. This is a critical time at USC as they come off sanctions and the rest of the P12 getting stronger. Hope Sark’s plan works out in the long run.

    ^^^ Just my own view, Baxter is a clown. But in total agreement with you on the other two.
