Good morning. Day 2 of life without Steve Sarkisian is upon the University of Washington. The biggest news yesterday came from UCLA, which announced a contract extension for coach Jim Mora. To the links …

Here’s our story in today’s newspaper, updating where UW stands with Mora seemingly out of the picture.

— Sarkisian was introduced at USC yesterday, and said he wished he’d been more forthcoming during that KJR interview on Monday.

Sarkisian said he feels right at home at USC.

USC and UCLA tried to out-do each other with coaching news on Tuesday.

— Bud Withers writes that Mora listened to his head instead of his heart.

— ESPN’s Ivan Maisel writes that Sarkisian offers USC a quick transition.

— Missouri coach Gary Pinkel declined comment on the UW job.
