Tuesday night random thoughts

A few more notes and links. …
— Just to reiterate, I heard again tonight that the only assistant likely staying on is Chris Tormey, though his role is uncertain. The other eight apparently have been told they would not be back.
RealDawg.com is reporting that the Huskies may be hiring Idaho defensive line coach Johnny Nansen to the defensive staff in some capacity (here’s his bio). Nansen played at Washington State in the Mike Price years. He was a quarterback in high school in Long Beach around the same time Sarkisian was a QB in Torrance before switching to defense as a Cougar. But the site says it has not been able to confirm it yet.
— One USC assistant rumored to have a chance to come here is secondary coach Rocky Seto. However, an LA source said tonight that Seto and Sarkisian have yet to talk about it. Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News chimes in with his thoughts on which assistants could end up coming here. He says Yogi Roth is the most likely.
— From talking to a few people since the hire, the consensus I’ve gotten is that the only coordinators UW really talked with were Sarkisian and Will Muschamp. Apparently, Brent Venables wasn’t as involved as was thought and it was thought all along UW was never interested in Dave Christensen.
— Also, the involvement of Kyle Whittingham and Chris Petersen may have been overstated, from what I’ve heard. Sounds as if Whittingham really doesn’t want to leave, and UW may not have been as interested in Petersen as some thought.
— Reader and frequent commenter Matty Simone, who organized the college basketball pool on here last spring, is again spearheading a college football pool for readers of this site through ESPN.com. Here’s a link to the page. The group name is Bowl Pickem Sea and the password is, uh, bob. I don’t know if I’ll be able to snare up a prize as I did for the basketball pool, but I’ll try.
All for now.
