Saturday links — Ex-Husky Rogers back for another year of Coming Home, and more

Matt Rogers may not be the most-remembered player in Washington history, having played for the Huskies for just one season after transferring from Iowa.

But he picked a good time to spend just one year at UW, serving as a key backup on the offensive line throughout the 2000 season, when the Huskies went 11-1 and beat Purdue in the Rose Bowl.

And he’s since carved out an impressive career in the entertainment industry, having appeared on American Idol and a host of a couple of different TV shows, including Lifetime’s “Coming Home,” which begins a new season Sunday at 10 p.m., its second year on the air.

Here’s an overview of the show, which tells the stories of the homecomings of soldiers.

You can follow Rogers on Twitter here, and below is a clip of an interview with Rogers talking about “Coming Home:”
