Washington Football Coaching Staff: Marques Tuiasosopo For Quarterbacks Coach?

The Washington Huskies could be shuffling their offensive staff if they can manage to wrangle Marques Tuiasosopo away from the UCLA wide receivers job and get him to coach quarterbacks for UW.

Steve Sarkisian could be going Pac-12 coaching poaching again. At least this time there will be some previous Husky connections here.

Tuiasosopo was the last quarterback to lead Washington to a Rose Bowl, he was on Sark's staff for two years as a strength coach, and you have to figure there would be strong pull for him to return back to a place he thrived to coach a position in which he thrived.

The current quarterbacks coach is Eric Kiesau, but he might be moved back to wide receivers coach responsibilities after the departure of Jimmie Dougherty to become the offensive coordinator for San Jose State. Kiesau has coached wide receivers for much of the past decade.

Last year Sarkisian poached three Pac-12 coaches from rival schools, taking Cal defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi and then WRs coach Kiesau up to UW and Oregon State defensive backs coach Keith Heyward up to a similar spot in Washington.
