During Washington’s announcement today on Chris Petersen’s coaching staff, defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi was reassigned to another position within the athletic dept. USC coincidentally still needs a defensive line coach, which shows how important Lupoi was to Steve Sarkisian.
The only real news is the hiring of Drevno, who worked for the San Francisco 49ers, Stanford and the University of San Diego under Jim Harbaugh. So does this qualify as one of the best staffs in America?
Still to be hired: Defensive line. Here’s the full release:
Steve Sarkisian had reached an agreement with an NFL offensive line coach before the end of the pro season. The Atlanta Falcons dismissed former Fresno State coach Pat Hill today. Could Hill be Sarkisian’s hire?
With NFL openings abound it will be interesting to see where Clancy Pendergast ends up as an assistant coach. Pendergast contacted a couple NFL teams the week after Lane Kiffin got fired, which was probably smart on his part.
