SEATTLE -- Washington selected former quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo as its interim head coach Wednesday for the Huskies' upcoming bowl game after Steve Sarkisian left to take the head-coaching job at USC.

Washington athletic director Scott Woodward announced the decision following an afternoon team meeting. Tuiasosopo was Washington's quarterbacks coach this past season and met with Woodward earlier in the day, when he was offered the interim job.

"I'm humbled and so honored," Tuiasosopo said in an announcement from the school. "It's a great, incredible honor to lead my alma mater in a bowl game. We still have a lot to play for this season. I am excited to go out and get a ninth win."

Tuiasosopo, 34, was a star quarterback at Washington from 1997 to 2000, leading the Huskies to a Rose Bowl title after the 2000 season.
