Very underwhelming hire. Not many USC fans happy with this decision.
It's a step up from Kiffin. Not totally surprised by this but I know USC fans were hoping for a bigger name.
That's a low bar. I'm a step up from Kiffin.
Don't be so hard on yourself.
Gary Kubiak is a step up from Kiffin.
As a Huskies fan - I don't think there will be too many distraught by losing him - after another so-so season, there was talk about whether they'd be keeping him after the summer.
That said - he's a good guy, has shown his willing to adapt (seen with the Huskies' up tempo offense this year) and hopefully he does well down there (apart from when visiting the Rainy City!).
I don't think it's a step up from Orgeron.
USC administration trying to live in the past by going through all of Carroll's old guys.
Neither did Orgeron, who stepped down.
lol at USC. Should have just kept Kiffin if they were gonna do this.
Double lol that the Huskies have had a head coach lured away, and replaced him with Petersen who has been fairly heavily recruited, which may have been an upgrade they would have looked at over the next couple of years anyway.
I was pretty concerned UW's recruiting class was lining up to head to USC or elsewhere if they were really disillusioned with Sark, but after this hire meltdown mode has been well and truly avoided in Seattle.
Washington definitely upgraded their coaching staff with that trade.
