Steve Sarkisian's website, CoachSark.com, has done a nice job taking its visitors behind the scenes of the Washington program. Part of that backstage pass has been micing up the Huskies' assistants as the team goes through spring ball. Last week we brought you sights and sounds of a Washington practice through the perspective of quarterbacks coach Marques Tuiasasopo, and now linebackers coach Peter Sirmon takes his turn.
A native of Walla Walla, Wash., Sirmon followed defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox from Tennessee to Washington, and the pair is now entering year two in Seattle. The Huskies' defense was ranked 106th in total defense and 108th in scoring defense in the year prior to the arrival of Wilcox and Sirmon, and leaped to 31st in total defense and 39th in scoring defense.
Sirmon's unit has the luxury of returning its entire two-deep, and we get the chance to watch him coach that group in a recent Huskies practice.
