Steve Sarkisian will be the new head football coach at USC according to a tweet from ESPN’s Joe Schad. Sarkisian had been an assistant at USC before taking over the head coaching position at Washington in 2009. He has a lifetime record of 34-29 including a 8-4 mark this year.

Earlier today our Jason McIntrye wrote that Sarkisian had emerged as the front-runner to replace Lane Kiffin, who was fired earlier this season after a 62-41 loss to Arizona State.
