Sarkisian on campus

New Husky coach Steve Sarkisian is on campus today, touring his new home and meeting with other coaches and administrators.
He was holding off on doing much talking with reporters until Monday’s press conference to formally introduce him, but did tell Percy Allen of the Times that “I’m excited to be here. It’s awesome.” He is apparently expected to meet with players for the first time on Monday morning before he is formally introduced at 9:30 a.m.
The press conference is open to the public and UW has even set up a Facebook page with details . You can also watch it via the internet here.
As for his staff, there’s lots of speculation that he may be able to bring one or two from USC’s current staff. However, as Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News points out, some of those coaches could have other options, as well. Indeed, the season of coaching changes, leading to a domino effect of other changes, is in full swing, and Sarkisian will be right in the middle of it to put together the rest of UW’s staff.
He’ll also have to get busy with recruiting. Next weekend is a big one for visits, as is the following week, but understandably given the circumstances, UW isn’t known to have any recruits lined up for visits yet.
UPDATE — After filing this, I was told a few more things Sarkisian did today.
He arrived in town about noon on a private plane and then toured the facilities at UW — he hadn’t really had an extensive one during his interview, apparently. He also spent some promotional stuff, including a blast voicemail that will likely go out to all season-ticket holders soon. He also met with some recruiting and academic coordinators — he said he plans to hit recruiting hard tomorrow once his introductory deal is completed.
His family came with him and one of his sons was already wearing a Husky No. 10 jersey on the visit. He was scheduled for a few donor receptions tonight.
As for tomorrow’s introduction, I’m told the best places to park are in lot E-1, which will cost $6, or E-11 and E-12, which will cost $12. They do recommend getting there a little early to assure a spot — its at the Don James Center which will hold a few hundred or so.
