USC offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian confirmed after Saturday's game with UCLA that he will become the new head football coach at Washington.
``I'm excited. It's been a great program in the past and they're obviously down now. But I'm going to get them back to fighting for a championship,'' Sarkisian said following USC's 28-7 win over the Bruins.
An official announcement is expected from Washington later Saturday night.
Word about Sarkisian and the head job at Washington leaked on Thursday night after Fresno State's Pat Hill and Texas Tech's Mike Leach both pulled their names from consideration for the job. Sarkisian has been an assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at USC for the last two seasons.
