According to multiple reports, Justin Wilcox is interviewing today for (Wednesday) for the head coaching job at Washington.

UPDATE: Wilcox is not going to USC with Steve Sarkisian. (via realdawg.com) Tosh Lupoi may be, but it is believed that Tosh is loyal to Wilcox, not Sark.

Wilcox had earlier been reported to be heading to USC with Steve Sarkisian to serve as his defensive coordinator, but it has been widely speculated that Wilcox would be very interested in the head coaching job at Washington, should he be offered the job.

Before serving the last two seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Huskies, he spent time as the defensive coordinator under Chris Petersen at Boise State. Petersen is another potential candidate for the Washington job, and it has been reported that Washington is one of the few schools he would consider coaching at outside of Boise.

Marques Tuiasosopo also interviewed for the head coaching position. I see that as a very unlikely scenario, honestly. I just really struggle to see someone who has spend a total of three seasons on the sidelines, zero as a coordinator, to be a viable head coaching candidate. (EDIT: he was only being interviewed as an interim candidate.)

Another option who has been thrown about is Doug Nussmeier, the offensive coordinator at Alabama.

Anthony profiled Wilcox this morning.
