Gervais definitely done

One current assistant many Husky fans thought had a chance to say was running backs coach Steve Gervais, the former coach at Skyline High.
But he confirmed just a few minutes ago that he has been told he will not be retained by new coach Steve Sarkisian.
“I’m done, I’m out,” he said, saying he was told in a meeting this morning.
Gervais left Skyline’s power-packed program after last season to take a chance on a coaching job with the Huskies, knowing it was tenuous.
He said he hoped to stay on but knew it was a risk.
“They made a decision to go in a different direction,” he said. “I understand that. It’s the business.”
As for what he will do next, Gervais said he didn’t know.
“I’m going to take some time and just evaluate and figure out what I want to do,” he said. “I have no immediate plans.”
Meanwhile, another source told the Times that the only UW assistant who may be retained is linebackers recruiting coordinator Chris Tormey. However, one source indicated that it is uncertain if he will be retained, only that he has been told he could be retained. It’s also uncertain what job he would have if he is kept. He has also coached tight ends and the secondary in his UW career.
COULD SETO JOIN STAFF AS WELL? — There has been speculation that USC secondary coach Rocky Seto could also join the UW staff in some capacity. One attraction for Seto, apparently, is that his wife is from the area, having graduated from Newport High, where she was a standout soccer player. She later played soccer at USC under her maiden name, Sharla Chiang.
