Report: Marques Tuiasosopo accepts coaching position at USC

Marques Tuiasosopo joins Steve Sarkisian at USC.

According to a report from the Seattle Times, Marques Tuiasosopo has accepted an offer to become the USC tight ends coach. The report also states Washington Head Coach Chris Petersen offered Tuiasosopo the same position at Washington.

Tuiasosopo joins former Husky coaches Johnny Nansen, Keith Heyward and Peter Sirmon at USC. Justin Wilcox is also expected to be announced as USC's defensive coordinator on Monday.

The Husky legend served as Washington's interim head coach after Sarkisian's departure to USC, helping lead the Huskies to a Fight Hunger Bowl victory last Friday.

Former Boise State quarterbacks coach Jonathan Smith is expected to become Washington's new quarterback coach.

Despite Tuiasosopo's strong ties to Washington and Justin Wilcox's history with Petersen, both opted to join Sarkisian and the majority of the former Washington staff in Southern California.
