Coaching The Washington Huskies Is One Of America's Most Underrated Jobs

The Washington Huskies look like a football program headed in the right direction, and things are only going to get better in the near future. Not only is it a beautiful part of the country to live in, but the school also has a rich tradition of success in football and in many of their other programs. And let's not forget about the massive reconstruction project that's currently renovating Husky Stadium

The college football crew at ESPN recently took a look at the most underrated coaching jobs in the country. Washington was one of the schools listed.

Here is what Mark Schlabach of ESPN had to say about the situation in UW.

Washington: The Huskies won a national championship under coach Don James in 1991, so there's no reason they shouldn't be more competitive in the Pac-12. Coach Steve Sarkisian, a former USC assistant, has expanded UW's recruiting base into California. Husky Stadium is finally getting a face-lift, so the Huskies will play this season at the Seattle Seahawks' CenturyLink Field. The $250 million project will remove the lower bowl of Husky Stadium and add a 40,000-square-foot football operations center, including a weight room and meeting rooms.

Nothing really groundbreaking here, but it's tough to argue that Washington isn't a great place to coach. And if their recent success on the recruiting trail is any indication, many of the nation's most talented prospects are taking notice.
