Video: Another familiar face joins USC coaching staff
Steve Sarkisian won't be the only recognizable figure on the USC sideline this season. Remember Marques Tuiasosopo? Of course you do. Well, the former Washington quarterback is now a part of the Trojans coaching staff.
Tuiasosopo had an illustrious career in Seattle. He was the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year in 2000. He led the Huskies to a victory in the 2001 Rose Bowl against Drew Brees and Purdue (he was the MVP of that game). Tuiasosopo was a legit two-way threat. He became the first quarterback in NCAA Division I history to throw for over 300 yards and rush for over 200 yards in the same game in a win over Stanford in 1999.
When his NFL career ended Tuiasosopo turned to coaching. He spent last season alongside Sarkisian at UW as their quarterbacks coach. He even gained some head coaching experience by serving as the Huskies' interim coach for their 31-16 Fight Hunger Bowl victory over BYU last year.
Now, the Pac-12 legend is the tight ends coach and associate head coach for an old rival. Watch the video above to catch up with Tuiasosopo as he chatted with Mike Yam and his old coach Rick Neuheisel during Pac-12 Networks' "Football Training Camp: USC."
