Sark says it would be “kind of fun” to have Carroll in town and he’s very happy at UW

UW coach Steve Sarkisian was one of Pete Carroll’s right-hand men for seven years at USC.
And with Carroll rumored to be on the verge of becoming the next coach of the Seahawks, it was a natural topic to broach at Sarkisian’s press conference today, which had been designed to promote the return of Jake Locker for his senior season.
Sarkisian, however, said he had little knowledge of what was going on with Carroll, saying he hadn’t talked to him recently and that it doesn’t surprise him that there would be rumors because there had been rumors of Carroll returning to the NFL every year he has been at USC.
Asked what it would be like to have Carroll across town, Sarkisian said “it would be kind of fun.”
Later, in a separate interview away from the podium, Sarkisian said UW fans don’t have to worry that any trickle-down from anything that might happen with Carroll would result in Sarkisian leaving the Huskies.
“I love my job,” he said. “People don’t understand it, but this is my dream job.”
Sarkisian and Carroll actually have the same agent, Gary Uberstine of Premier Sports and Entertainment. But Sarkisian said “I haven’t talked to him” and that there would be no need to since he’s fully content to stay at UW, where he has four years remaining on his original contract signed a year ago.
Sarkisian’s also not thought to be on the top of the list should USC find itself with an opening.
The general USC consensus is that the top three candidates would be Oregon State’s Mike Riley — a former offensive coordinator at USC under John Robinson; Jeff Fisher, who played at USC; and Jack Del Rio, who also played at USC.
I also just saw a Tweet from Petros Papadakis that “wild card” coaching candidates would be UCLA OC and former USC OC Norm Chow and Boise State’s Chris Petersen.
In short, doesn’t sound like UW fans would have anything to worry about — Sarkisian says he’s very content to stay at Washington a long time, and he’s probably not on USC’s short list to begin with.
