Steve Sarkisian Fired as USC Coach

By Jason McIntyre

Steve Sarkisian, who is currently at a treatment center for alcohol and possibly prescription pills, has been dismissed as head coach of USC football, the school announced.

This may seem like a heartless move, especially for a man who clearly needs help. But Sarkisian has far more pressing issues ahead, like recovery, which can take a long time. I believe this was actually the right move, rather than let this linger over the program for months and bleed into the offseason.

Sarkisian coached just 18 games at USC, and now the attention will turn to Pat Haden, the AD who hired Sark.
