SEATTLE (AP) -Steve Sarkisian (sar-KEYS'-ee-an) has been introduced as the new football coach at Washington, replacing Tyrone Willingham.
Athletic director Scott Woodward and school president Mark Emmert introduced Sarkisian, with Emmert saying, ``We think we got our guy.''
Sarkisian says he can't wait to ``get this thing going'' and to compete for championships.
Washington is the first Pac-10 team to finish with an 0-12 record after a season-ending loss to California. Willingham was 11-37 in his four seasons with the Huskies.
More than 200 people attended Sarkisian's news conference at Husky Stadium's Don James Center, including cheerleaders, the marching band, alumni and four students with S-A-R-K painted on their chests.
