On Thursday night, former NFL quarterback and Washington alum Marques Tuiasosopo guided his alma mater to a convincing 31- 16 win over BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl - his lone game as interim head coach.

“I had the easy job. I got to stand back and watch these guys play,’’ Tuiasosopo said afterward. “My joy comes through them.”

For what it's worth, he now has a 1-0 record and a bowl game victory. Not a bad start.

Yet with Boise State legend Chris Petersen taking over, Tuiasosopo's future isn't known, but one report out on Saturday indicated he has been offered the tight ends coaching job at Washington and also USC where ex-Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian has taken the reigns.

Washington's defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox left to join Sarkisian following Thursday's bowl game victory becoming the fourth former Huskies assistant to depart for USC - Johnny Nansen, Keith Heyward and Peter Sirmon are the others.

Will Tui join the Los Angeles exodus or remain in Seattle? Stay tuned.
