We do have a lot to offer, he said. "Our stadium, in that setting, might be the best in all of sports, never mind college football. To go along with the facilities that fit in that stadium, removing the track, the fans' proximity to the field, just that electric atmosphere Husky Stadium presents. There's a lot to offer, but it is great to be in that arms race, to know we have the facilities that can compete with anybody in the country. (Via: CoachingSearch.com)

Coach Sarkisian, what are some positives of coaching big time college football in a city like Seattle?

Steve Sarkisian (12:15 PM): The biggest positive is gameday. There's nothing like it. To work with young men and develop them and work with a big university is unique and special. You wake up every day that's new and exciting and challenging.

Coach, what do you foresee being the biggest position battles in fall camp being?

Steve Sarkisian (12:28 PM): I think we'll have some great position battles in the DB. Having to replace Trufant and Glen there. There will be a good battle at our second and third WR spots competing for playing time.

Just how rugged is the PAC 12 North? Not only on the field but on the recruiting trail?

Steve Sarkisian (12:30 PM): It's challenging. There are great coaches in this conference from top to bottom. Talented players. We all want to recruit talented players who can represent our university. We all recruit the same kids. You try to keep things unique to your univerisity. You try to put your best foot forward and compete at a high level.

  • Sarkisian on SportsCenter:

As much as the law might put some punitive stuff on them, we're looking at it from a rehabilitative standpoint and we'll handle it internally," Sarkisian said. "We haven't gotten to the point where we've made a final decision with them on games and times and suspension and all that stuff, but they've been working extremely hard ... and have done all the things we've asked them to do.
