  • Could Jake Locker still go Pro?

    If (when?) Pete Carroll leaves USC for Seattle, one of the obvious names that will instantly come to people's head to replace him is Steve Sarkisian.

    Since I (and I think most) believe that being with Sarkisian was a big motivator for Locker coming back to school, his loss would be a gigantic disappointment for Locker.

    Locker has the most to lose in the Pete Carroll situation. Carroll's hiring will take a few days as minorities have to be interviewed and contracts written up. The USC coaching search will also take some time as coaches have to be vetted and all that jazz. It's very likely the entire situation would go beyond the January 15 deadline.

    I am glad I am not in Locker's shoes right now, then again if I were - I would be preparing for the draft already.

      That would be intresting. If Steve Sarkesian did leave, I think Locker would need to rethink his standing.

        Jack Del Rio will be the nest coach of the Trojans. Book it.

            thats definitely an interesting pick, and it wouldnt surprise me one bit. I think if Carrol does end up leaving USC is going to land a big coach.

            And i would not rule out Sark at all, sure he just started at U Dub, but im sure USC would be his dream job.

              Lets be realistic, Bill Cower is going to be the next coach at USC if Carroll leaves.

                    Thought about this idea earlier and it's great for everyone involved.

                    It allows USC to hire a homegrown talent who is a quality coach, allows Jack Del Rio to avoid being fired (and probably take his dream job) and allows Jacksonville to avoid paying him 15 million dollars.

                      What if Pete Carroll went to Seattle, Steve S. left to go back to USC (a much more illustrious job than at U of Washington), and that opened the door for Jim Mora Jr. to get his dream job at the U of Washington? That'd be straight out of the Twilight Zone.

                        I doubt Steve S. is leaving Washington. MAYBE to go to USC. But, why leave for an NFL job that may not exist in two years (lockout)? Especially as a coordinator?

                          They actually had a Sarkisian/Locker press conferance at the UW today (coincidental or not) where Locker said he was staying and Sark said he was happy where he was.

                            I think it was too much fun for Sark to stick USC with a loss this season to leave UW after one year, especially after the progress they showed. I think he'll stay to finish the job. And I really hope that he does, because for all of the criticisms Locker took for turning down all that guaranteed money to come back for his senior year, I really think it was the right decision.

                            He's only played one year with a coach that is going to get him pro-ready, and I think he's much better served staying put and growing as a quarterback before some terrible team throws him into the fire as a rookie. Maybe by waiting a year, he'll get lucky and a team that's much better than their record indicates will end up with a top-ten pick (like Eli Manning to the Giants or Big Ben to the Steelers). He's one of my favorite college players, so I really hope it works out for him that way!

                              Nick Saban wasn't coaching Alabama either.

                              Washington will NEVER be as good of a job as USC, nor will they EVER be able to pay as much as USC. If USC wants Sarkisian, I highly doubt he is going to turn down a raise and a better job for some reason as "wanting to finish the job" in Washington.
