Wednesday afternoon links — Wilcox interview with ESPN.com and more

The UW football program has been kind of underground since letter-of-intent signing day, with coaches largely staying out of the media spotlight as the remade staff worked on preparing for spring football.

But with spring ball set to begin on Monday, the veil is starting to lift a little bit.

UW coach Steve Sarkisian will have a press conference on Friday to preview spring ball.

And today, part one of an interview with defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox was published on ESPN.com’s Pac-12 blog — here it is. This part largely deals with his background, so part two — which promises questions more specific about the Huskies — may be of even more interest to UW fans.

Also today, new defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi’s Twitter account went live. There was a little bit of a false alarm earlier with a reported Lupoi account. But this one is the real deal.
