Former Washington star quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo is scheduled to meet with UW athletic director Scott Woodward today, according to the site FootballScoop.com.

It seems unlikely Tuiasosopo, 34, would be considered for UW’s permanent head-coaching job at this stage of his career; this is his first season as UW’s quarterbacks coach and just his second overall as a position coach (he coached tight ends at UCLA in 2012). He does, however, make sense as an interim coach for UW’s bowl game, and he would be a strong candidate to remain on the UW staff under the next head coach.

“Tui,” the 2000 Pac-10 offensive player of the year, told me last week he would like to be a head coach some day.

“My first dream was to be able to play in the NFL,” he said. “My second was to be a coach. And then, you know, I’d love to be a head coach down the road, so I’m just taking it one step at a time and I love it. I love teaching these guys, and I’ve learned a lot of football.”
