UCLA Reportedly Interested in Steve Sarkisian

According to the Los Angeles Times the UCLA Bruins football program is interested in current Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian for the same position, though would likely be a very long shot to get him.

Washington football Coach Steve Sarkisian, a former assistant coach at USC, has been approached by UCLA, according to people familiar with the situation who are not authorized to speak publicly on the subject.

Sarkisian signed a contract extension back in January with Washington that paid him $2.25 million for the 2011 season and would up rise to $2.85 by 2015. The deal also has $2.5-million buyout if Sarkisian left during the first two years of the contract that the Huskies would have to fork over as well.

UCLA likely doesn’t have the money or infrastructure to draw him away from Washington, especially with a $250 million renovation of UW’s football stadium and facilities in the works.

2011 Alamo Bowl: Washington Huskies To Play Baylor Bears

The Alamo Bowl appears to have settled on their matchup. The Washington Huskies will have their hands full against the remarkable Robert Griffin III and the Baylor Bears. My San Antonio has the report.

The Alamo has the first selection of the non-BCS bowls for Pac-12 teams, and with the Oregon Ducks and the Stanford Cardinal both on their way to the Bowl Championship Series, that means Alamo had their pick of Washington, Cal and Utah for that game. Considering Washington has beaten both Utah and Cal and the Huskies probably have the most proficient offense of all three teams, they became the logical choice.

Baylor has a Heisman Trophy candidate in Robert Griffin III. Considering the local proximity of the Waco-based program to San Antonio, it makes sense that they'd pick Baylor in what figures to be a game without defense.

To discuss the matchup with Husky fans, head to UW Dawg Pound. To discuss the game with Baylor fans, go to Our Daily Bears.
