Week in Review: Seahawks Shake Up Coaching Staff and Huskies Win Big Against Arizona

It may have been a short work week, but it certainly didn't feel like it. I don't know about you, but I had a very long week and so did sports. A busy week of coaching turnover and marque college basketball matchups filled this week. Throw in deer antler performance enhancing drugs, playoff football, and an arena name that is about 20 letters too long and we have another great week in Seattle sports. See how all of us here at SB Nation Seattle covered it after the jump.

Monday, Jan 17

Martin Luther King, Jr. day and it's time for basketball. None of the Washington college teams were active today, but Nate Parham cover the annual Seattle high school tournament in Kings honor. Also, today was the day after The Seahawk's destruction in Chicago. There was plenty of reaction to cover and we had it all.

Tuesday, Jan 18

The Seahawks made it into the divisional championship round of the playoffs, but Pete Carroll decided that that wasn't enough. Today, Carroll decided that his offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, just wasn't the right fit and let him go. As one coach leaves, a new one enters. Former Oakland Raider coach Tom Cable came in to become assistant head coach. Also today, The Mariners made some moves and Milton Bradley got into a little bit of trouble.

Wednesday, Jan 19

There is on offensive coordinator job available in Seattle, and the interview process starts. Also, as the NFL season gets older and older, draft previews start to ramp up.

The Huskies dismantled the Wildcats on Thursday, today, we covered reaction. We also had a look forward to Saturday's game against The Arizona State Sun Devils. On the other side of the ball, today was an up and down day for Huskies on the football recruiting trail, but they got a big win as they stole a verbal commit from their cross state rivials in crimson and gray. The Huskies wrapped up a busy day by awarding their leader with a new five year deal.

Saturday, Jan 22

Game day! Part deux! While the Huskies played the nationally ranked Wildcats on Thursday, they made the trek over the mountains to take on Washington State. It was back and forth, but the Cougars just could not get their shots to fall and lost it when a heartbreaking last shot didn't fall. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were barely able to send their game in San Fransisco into overtime and Washington played it close with ASU before pulling away.
