Yesterday, my good friend and ministry colleague Steve Sarkisian celebrated his 45th wedding anniversary with his beautiful wife Gail. I think it's safe to say that without Steve, my ministry wouldn't be where it is today.

A lil late, but I jus wanna say shout out to the USC Trojans for signing the best Recruiting class in Pac-12 for the 2014 cycle. Real clutch performance by Steve Sarkisian and his staff landing Lamont Simmons, Damien Mama, Adoree Jackson, and John "Juju" Smith on signing day. FIGHT ON!!!
Former USC quarterback Max Wittek, who last week told the Trojans he intends to transfer, has multiple options, including Texas, Louisville and Hawaii, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad. Wittek plans to graduate in the spring and has two years of eligibility left. He would be able to play immediately because of an NCAA rule that allows graduates the freedom to transfer without losing a year of eligibility. "I had talked to coach [Steve Sarkisian] a couple of times," Wittek told the Los Angeles Times. "What it really came down to was a feel for me. ... Getting my degree from such a great university will mean a lot, and ultimately, allowing me to play right away with two years to play was the best way to go." Wittek was locked in a quarterback competition with Cody Kessler last spring for the right to replace Matt Barkley. That competition eventually spilled into the 2013 regular season, and Wittek and Kessler spent the first two games splitting time before then-coach Lane Kiffin settled on Kessler as the star ...

While USC continues to put the finishing touches on their 2014 recruiting class with signing day less than two weeks away, the Trojans began to build a foundation for 2015 on Saturday night. New coach Steve Sarkisian landed a verbal commitment from quarterback Ricky Town (Ventura, Calif./St. Bonaventure), the No. 2-rated pocket passer -- and No. 22 overall prospect -- in the ESPN Junior 300, who decommited from Alabama earlier in the day. "I'm proud to be a part of the Trojan Family!" Town said via text. "I've seen many of the top programs and what they have to offer. However, when I had the chance to get on the USC campus last week and spend time with Coach Sarkisian and his staff, I knew after those meetings that USC is where I want to be. The coaches are upbeat, focused and committed to winning and I completely believe in them. I chose USC because of the tradition, the academics and the incredible coaching staff. This is an amazing opportunity to be a part of something really special. Fight On!" Meanwh ...

I know College Football season just ended, but here are 10 players to watch who could become stars in 2014, continuing the trend of redshirt freshmen jumping into the national spotlight. Max Browne, QB, USC Former USC coach Lane Kiffin elected to redshirt five-star freshman quarterback Browne after determining his quarterback race would be between redshirt sophomores Cody Kessler and Max Wittek. Kessler won the job, but now new coach Steve Sarkisian says he'll open the competition up again this spring. Browne, the No. 1 rated quarterback in the 2013 recruiting class, will certainly be in the mix. And according to some inside the program, he is already the frontrunner to win the starting position. Browne led his Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline High School team to three state championship appearances, winning the title his junior and senior seasons. There's no doubt the redshirt freshman has the leadership skills and physical tools to be the next great USC quarterback. The biggest question mark is if he will fit ...

WHMA Tuesday News Update - www.WHMABIG95.com Michael Shayne Green, 43, Russell Carl Sharp, 48, Amanda Cate Holland, 34, all of Gadsden, have been arrested by the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department and all are charged with multiple counts and degrees of burglary, theft of property and one count of arson. Bond is set at $105,000 cash and $25,500 property for Green and Sharp. Holland has a $45,000 cash bond. The trio allegedly broke into 20 residences between November 1st and January 8, 2014. The thefts occurred at homes located in Attalla, Gadsden, Glencoe and Southside. They are in the Etowah County jail.

Steve Sarkisian on Bo Davis's switch to Alabama- "We had a bit of a hiccup yesterday."
On the Move: USC hired Bo Davis to be their D Line Coach on Jan 7th. Guess he got a better offer because 6 days later... he left to become Alabama's D Line Coach. "We wish Bo and his family the best of luck. He is a good coach," new USC head coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement. "We will move forward and find a great coach for our defensive line."
CoachingSearch.com USC: In looking for an defensive line coach, Steve Sarkisian initially pursued Chris Wilson at Georgia, who declined. With Bo Davis off to Alabama, it will be interesting to see if Sark shifts running backs coach / special teams coordinator Johnny Nansen to defensive line.
Bo Davis, who accepted the USC defensive line coaching position on January 7, told Steve Sarkisian today that because of family reasons, he has reconsidered his decision, and is instead accepting a similar position at Alabama.
USC head coach Steve Sarkisian confirms that DL coach Bo Davis has accepted a similar position at Alabama.

Alot of Alabama fans have received the news of Lane Kiffin as the new offensive coordinator with skepticism at best and criticism at worst. I got curious and decided to do a little research on Kiffin to see exactly how good or bad an offensive coach he is. Everybody knows he is an immature spoiled brat. Everybody pretty much agrees that he is kind of a jerk with not the best people skills. But obviously Nick Saban sees something in him that the rest of us do not. Otherwise, he would not have such glowing praise of Kiffin's coaching abilities and would not have hired him. After doing a little digging I found out that Kiffin is a really good coach. Here is an overview of his career until up until now. He played starting quarterback at Fresno State from 1994-1996. He got into coaching in 1999. His first job was coaching the offensive line in 1999 at Colorado State University. He then was wide-receivers coach for the Jacksonville Jagquars in 2000. Kiffin then moved to the University of Southern California in ...

We are being told Ricky Town likes the style of offense Lane Kiffin runs, but also likes the offense Steve Sarkisian will run at USC.
USC fired Kiflin which was a very good move. He is now running Alabama's offense?? Time will tell if Steve Sarkisian is a good replacement?
I have now lost all respect for the university of Alabama. Lane Kiffin is the *** bag of all *** bags and how you could hire that guy astonishes me. The guy has been a disaster in Oakland, at Tennessee, and at Southern Cal. The only success he's ever had was as a CO OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR with Steve Sarkisian. I hope Alabama loses every game from now til he's fired and can't wait for him to get them placed on probation for some ridiculous violation that he will undoubtedly commit. Hate him, despise Alabama, and have lost respect for Nick Saban
Had lunch with Steve Sarkisian the head coach at USC today at the RITZ in Newport Beach. He is a super positive individual and wished him all the luck at TROY-Fight On!!!
Billy Black your boys at Penn State look like they're getting one heck of a coach. James Franklin's Vandy squad whipped our Vol *** real good last year, and this year with his team poised to lose in Neyland Stadium, out coached Tennessee's staff and pulled victory out of the jaws of defeat. He beat Georgia, Florida and Tennessee for probably the first time in Vandy history this year (Florida and Tennessee wins were impressively on the road). Passionate recruiter and coach ... I hated him when he was at Vandy, but at the same time wish we had interviewed him!! He's definitely better than the other two high profile hires this year, Charlie Strong (now at Texas) and Steve Sarkisian (now at USC) IMO.
It’s been a relatively quiet year in the coaching carousel so far, with a mere 14 schools either looking for, or needing, new coaches. Two of those schools are in the PAC 12, with USC’s firing of Lane Kiffin and subsequent hiring of Washington’s Steve Sarkisian opening up a vacancy with the Huskies.
The 2014 Husky football schedule has been released and the Dawgs will open the season in HONOLULU against Hawaii on Saturday, August 30. The next 4 games in a row will all be at home including the Pac-12 League opener against Stanford on Saturday, September 27th. Besides Hawaii, the other Non-Conference schools the dawgs will play are Eastern Washington, Illinois and Georgia State. Other home games are against Arizona State, UCLA Oregon State. The Apple Cup with the Cougars has now moved back to Saturday, Thanksgiving weekend in Pullman. Finally, NO DATE with Steve Sarkisian and the USC Trojans! BO!

He built a Hall of Fame coaching career, turning Washington into a powerhouse program that won a share of a national championship. More from ESPN.com Don James treated players, coaches with respect and earned it in return. But he never took himself too seriously, writes Ivan Maisel. Story Don James, who took a floundering Washington program and made it a contender, has never been truly replaced, writes Jim Caple.

USC head coach Steve Sarkisian has officially named former UW DC Justin Wilcox the Trojans new defensive coordinator.
Marques Tuiasosopo will rejoin former Washington Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian as the tight ends coach at USC, according to a report. Tuiasosopo, who guided Washington to victory in the Fight Hunger Bowl as the interim coach after Sarkisian's departure, had been offered a position to stay with new Huskies coach Chris Petersen, the Seattle Times reported citing sources. Tuiasosopo played quarterback for Washington from 1997 to 2000.
SEATTLE – Chris Petersen has brought familiar faces onto his new staff for his debut season with the Huskies. Petersen announced Monday that Pete Kwiatkowski is his defensive coordinator for 2014 at Washington, Jonathan Smith is his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Chris Strausser is his associate head coach and offensive line coach, Bob Gregory is his assistant head coach and linebackers coach, Jimmy Lake is the defensive backs coach, Jeff Choate will serve as defensive line and special teams coach, Brent Pease is the wide receivers coach and Keith Bhonapha is his running backs coach and recruiting coordinator. All worked with Petersen for all or some parts of his tenure leading Boise State to a 92-12 record. That was from 2006 until Washington hired him Dec. 6 to replace the departed Steve Sarkisian. Petersen has also brought Tim Socha from Boise State to be the new strength and conditioning coach at UW. Tacoma native Rich Rasmussen is the Huskies’ new director of player personnel and M ...

"They bring with them both a wealth of experience, and an understanding of what we want to accomplish here and how to get it done." Pete Kwiatkowski will be the defensive coordinator after serving in that role under Petersen at Boise State. He'll be joined on that side of the ball by Bob Gregory, who was Boise State's interim coach for its bowl game loss to Oregon State. Gregory will be the Huskies linebackers coach/assistant head coach. Jimmy Lake will coach defensive backs and Jeff Choate will be the special teams coordinator and defensive line coach. On the offensive side, Jonathan Smith will be promoted from his role at Boise State and be the ...

Sendek has done for ASU Basketball what Steve Sarkisian did for University of Washington Football. He's kept ASU scandal-free and respectable for a long time and he should be given his due.

Justin Wilcox will leave Washington and join Steve Sarkisian at USC as the Trojans' defensive coordinator, CBS's Bruce Feldman is reporting. Wilcox was a defensive back at Oregon in the late 1990s, and started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Boise State in 2001 under head coach Dan Hawkins. In 2003 he was hired by Cal as the school's linebackers coach, and returned to Boise State in 2006 under Chris Petersen as the school's defensive coordinator. In Wilcox's four seasons as a coordinator with the Broncos, the program went 49-4, ranking fourth in defensive F/+ in 2008 and 14th in 2009. Boise State gave up just 12.6 points per game in that 2008 season, and made two BCS bowl games (winning both of them) during his time with the school. 2010, Wilcox was hired as the defensive coordinator at Tennessee, a position he held for two years. The Volunteers' defense struggled in his first year, finishing 49th in defensive F/+ In 2012, he was hired as Washington's defensive coordinator, taking a unit th ...
USC Baily gone to NFl but good news... USC junior tight end Randall Telfer took to social media on Christmas day to announce that he would be returning to play his senior year for the Trojans. The move is a boost for the USC offense under new head coach Steve Sarkisian, as Telfer is an experienced and talented player who is known for being a good blocker and dependable pass catcher. Telfer has 44 career catches for 451 yards and 10 touchdowns but was limited to only six catches for 78 yards and one score in 2013 due to injuries. The Trojans now await a final decision from Xavier Grimble, another draft-eligible junior tight end. Grimble has given indications that he will likely stay at USC, but no final decision has been made yet. Grimble was third on the USC receptions list in 2013 with 25 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns. At Washington, Sarkisian coached 2013 Mackey Award winner Austin Seferian-Jenkins. USC will also return Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick as a third-year junior tight end in 2014. Roundtab ...

Note to Toys R Us — repack the Sanchez figures in two packs with an o-lineman figure as a recreation of the butt fumble and it will sell out faster than Steve Sarkisian. —Scott, Redmond, VA SG: Sadly, they DID sell out of that item. You can't find it on their website anymore. Thank god for eBay! That's a solid joke Christmas gift, which got me thinking — couldn't the NFL corner the joke Christmas gift market?

Free Play from Steve Janus USC Trojans -6 A lot of people aren't expecting USC to show up for this game after it was announced that Steve Sarkisian would be the head coach next season, which ultimately forced beloved interim head coach Ed Orgeron out the door. Personally any coach for the bowl game is better than Lane Kiffin and I think the players are going to respond, especially after last year's disappointing loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl. Keep in mind USC came into last season with the expectation of playing for a national championship and were without their starting quarterback in the bowl game. There's a lot of players on this USC team that will be auditioning for the NFL and with scouts paying close attention to Fresno State's David Carr, they have a chance here to improve their draft stock against what I feel is an overrated Bulldogs team. If USC was 100% motivated for this game, I think they would win by 20+ points. Fresno State has no defense whatsoever, will be facing arguably the best d ...

Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State Bulldogs (11-1) vs. Southern Cal Trojans (9-4) December 21st 2:30 PM on ESPN DID YOU KNOW: This will be the 3rd meeting between Fresno State and Southern Cal. The Bulldogs won the 1st meeting in the 1992 Freedom Bowl 24-7 while Trojans won the 2nd meeting 50-42 in 2005. Southern Cal has had a tumultuous season that started with Lane Kiffin's controversial tenure at USC ended with his firing following a 62-41 loss at Arizona State in September. The Trojans promoted assistant head coach Ed Orgeron to the interim job. Southern Cal seemed to be sparked by the coaching change, winning 6 of its 7 under Orgeron before ending the regular season with a 35-14 home loss to then UCLA. Despite that success, AD Pat Haden decided to hire former assistant Steve Sarkisian away from Washington rather than give the permanent job to Orgeron, who resigned to pursue another head coaching job and turned down offers from Sarkisian to remain on staff. Southern Cal QB Cody Kessler: "After the Coach O m ...

Kirk Bohls printed this tonight in the Statesman. Feel free to discuss and I'll try to wrap my mind around it and answer up later today (Whisenant) Mack Brown’s future at Texas after 16 successful seasons remains in limbo, but I wouldn’t look for him to stay unemployed long if he chooses to step down but continue coaching elsewhere. Joe Jamail, his trusted friend and attorney, told me he received “a feeler from a major, major university to see if Mack was interested.” When I asked Jamail if that was USC before it hired Steve Sarkisian, he said, “I can’t tell you. They called me in complete confidence.” Other big-name schools have come after Mack regularly. I think Nebraska would be crazy not to consider Brown if it lets Bo Pelini go. … Jamail also spoke to Brown at length Saturday night. “Mack said he was proud of our boys,” Jamail said. “You can’t win without a good quarterback, and we don’t have one.”
football RANT!!: Man all I hear is how bad of a hire USC made by hiring Steve Sarkisian. In my eyes a much better overall coach then Chris Peterson. So, I will say this as an Oregon Duck fan, I'm worried for a few reasons. First, Steve made a winless Washington team legit& become a 9 win team this year. And You know how hard it is to get guys to play football in Seattle. Who wants to play in the rainest city in America. Now his got a roster loaded with NFL talent... FUK! Second this is his DREAM JOB! He will put in that extra time and get the most out of a program that regularly gets NFL talent!! Best local example is Rocky Long @ UNM. Openly admitted UNM his dream job. The school needed to take the good years with the bad and realize, UNM at best a Las Vegas Bowl team cuz we went once... under Rocky Long, a long time ago when he let that girl kick a field goal, and what has that program done since... 3rd, his coaching style. I Guess his not beloved like Kiffin but what did Lane do? Believe it or not u ca ...

OK, Univ. of Texas prez says nothing in the works with Nick Saban. Auburn just PAID Gus Malzahn to stick around for 6 more years. Chris Peterson is headed to Washington and Steve Sarkisian jumped for USC. Sooo...how about Lane Kiffin TO TEXAS!!! (I like that rumor)
The University of Washington just hit a home run with the hiring of Chris Petersen from Boise State! The hiring of Steve Sarkisian at USC, not so much! PAC-12 Championship Game: Go Arizona State! Beat Stanford!
For the university of Washington to get rid of Steve Sarkisian and get Chris Petersen is the real-life equivalent of taking your 1972 Chevy Malibu to a dealership to trade it in and they tell you the only thing they can give you for your trade-in is a 2013 Bentley. Unbelievable!!!

2013’s offseason coaching carousel will be quieter than last year, when the SEC had four head coaching jobs open entering December. As things stand right now, it looks like all SEC head coaches will return in 2014, assuming none leave for other jobs. But like always, assistants will move on to other programs or get fired. Here’s an early December update of coaching news and rumors: Alabama Nick Saban’s name is still being thrown around at Texas. Multiple reports have surfaced that Saban is Texas’ man in 2014, but I don’t buy it. OC Doug Nussmeier is the apparent front-runner to get the Washington job. Steve Sarkisian left Washington for USC, and Nussmeier is one of the top choices to replace him. Auburn A Sports Illustrated report cited a source that said Gus Malzahn’s ‘dream job’ is Texas, and he responded to that report.

[Times Herald] For new USC coach Steve Sarkisian, the timing is right
Coach Steve Sarkisian Takes Over At USC by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS December 03, 201312:48 AM LOS ANGELES (AP) — A few hours after Steve Sarkisian was hired by Southern California, the coach bounded up the steps of the palatial McKay Center and went to work on getting the Trojans back to national title contention. USC hired Sarkisian away from Washington on Monday, bringing back the former Trojans offensive coordinator to his native Los Angeles area and the storied program where he thrived as Pete Carroll's assistant. Sarkisian immediately held a 35-minute evening meeting with his new players, easing their next transition in a tumultuous season. "It's awesome to be home," Sarkisian said on USC's downtown campus while clad in a black Trojans sweatshirt. "A lot has gone on, but it's awesome to be back. I'm fired up to be here. ... It's great to be back. It's great to be part of the Trojan family again. It's always been a dream of mine to be here." Two days after USC's regular season ended with a 35-14 home lo ...

Steve Sarkisian's hiring as USC football coach reminds me of UCLA's first post-John Wooden hiring as men's basketball coach. It could have hired just about anyone in the country, including future Hall of Famer Denny Crum, a former UCLA assistant, who I think wanted the job. Instead, it hired Gene Bartow, who was coming off an 8-18 season an Illinois. Two years earlier, Bartow had coached Memphis State to the Final Four, where it lost to UCLA, as Bill Walton made 21 of 22 shots in an era when dunking was prohibited.

UW's Steve Sarkisian 'very pleased' with Cyler Miles' first start
Transcript from Steve Sarkisian's press conference, with video that will process eventually:
Like last week, UW's starting QB will likely remain a mystery until game day (with video of Sarkisian):
Steve Sarkisian said Cyler Miles will again prepare to start at QB, and Keith Price will be assessed closer to game day.
Its hard to believe UW will keep Steve Sarkisian if WSU wins the Apple Cup. If so thatll be 2 coaches fired after Mike Leach victories
Steve Sarkisian says Keith Price threw in practice today. Not 100%. Prepping for Cyler Miles to start vs.
Interesting. Not sure I agree 100%, but it has me thinking ->> Washington needs a change from Steve Sarkisian
Do you think that maybe we have our priorities a little screwed up? Steve Sarkisian, and Mike Leach coaches at Washington and Washington state, are easily the states two highest paid public employees! This does not include bonuses and other perks like cars, clubs, housing allowances and travel freebies. Why should we worry about stupid things like women and infant care programs?, or maybe something really dumb like a balanced budget?
ESPN experts both agree, BYU projected to face former QB Steve Sarkisian and Washington in bowl game.

Just NOT going to be an Oregon sports fan's night tonight. Ducks get punched right in the mouth and get eliminated from any chance at the PAC 12 Championship and a BCS bowl game. The Beavers totally turn turtle and get hog stomped in their own stadium by the Huskies. Mike Riley continues to hold the title of "nicest man in the world" as he makes sure Steve Sarkisian will not get fired by letting the Huskies do whatever they want to the Beavers. And finally.the Blazers just got jobbed hugely down at Golden State where a fight broke out. Andrew Bogut of Golden State started it, punched TWO Blazers in the throat.and he is still in the game. The Blazers had Mo Williams and Wes Mathews kicked out as a result. No way Mathews should have been.
"If you are a Husky fan you have to be wondering where this has been all year?" ESPN announcer doing the Beavers game. No kidding. The only coach who under achieves more in the PAC 12 than Mike Riley is Steve Sarkisian. And of course.when the Beavers needed to play a huge game most at home to build momentum heading to a Civil War game against a suddenly very mortal Ducks team.they do this. CLASSIC Mike Riley. At ANY other school with the slightest expectations of winning, he might be in danger of being fired. But not at Oregon State. In football mediocrity is not just expected.it is the standard he strives for. Thank God baseball season will soon be here and then we will see a coach who is COMMITTED to winning and excellence.
Norm Chow? Steve Sarkisian? Mike Leach? Ready for BYU to hire a coach who will take us to the next level. Tired of being disappointed year after year.
Steve Sarkisian's Washington Huskies have been flagged 89 times, most among FBS schools. But this isn't a one-year problem. It's a pattern he allowed to develop.
Pac-12 Conference Thursday reprimanded University of Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian for public comments he made this week about the league’s officiating, and for disclosing private conversations he had with conference officials. Sarkisian criticized game officials after a penalty erased a Washington touchdown in the Huskies’ 41-31 loss to UCLA last Friday night.

Although the Washington Huskies are well on their way to their fourth-consecutive winning season under Coach Steve Sarkisian, few programs are hungrier and more impatient to get to the next, higher level in both on-field results and in recruiting: Well, last Tuesday, the Huskies took a step, even if small, towards getting to that next level in recruiting. And, if they can continue to get more players like this one, chances are they will very possibly do the same in the earlier. 4* DT Jacob Daniel, from Clovis North HS in Fresno, CA, in Rivals250 for 2015, and in Scout 300 for 2015, will play for the program located in Seattle, WA.
If the Washington Huskies fire there head coach (which I don't think they should) but if they do then please, pretty please USC don't hire Ed Ogeron as your full time head coach at end of season and go hire a big name coach and please let Ed Ogeron come take the Washington Huskies head coaching job (like I said only if the Huskies fire Steve Sarkisian)
Oh man. I got So here u go 1. I also have a crush on the Huskies coach,coach Steve Sarkisian☺️ guess I have a thing for coaches. Lol 2. My favorite animal is a turtle and I have no idea why. 3.

I'm extremely afraid of water, I can't even have the shower spray me in the face.
Mike Leach and Steve Sarkisian should co-coach their next team. Leach can take the road games, Sark can take the home games:/ Nice win Cougs!
Pay thadt man hees money (said in my best John Malkovich Russian accent from 'Rounders') USC willing to pay it's next HC $6 million/year! Hope they pick the right guy Names running around the rumor mill include interim HC Ed Orgeron (USC), Jack Del Riom (Broncos), James Franklin (Vandy), Steve Sarkisian (Washington), and even Kevin Sumlin (Texas A&M). We even heard a wild one about Jon Gruden (AKA Chucky) being contacted!
Myles Jack was visibly surprised when he learned the identity of the last UCLA running back to score four rushing touchdowns in one game. "Wow, Maurice Jones-Drew was my idol back in my running back days," Jack said. Jack is still a linebacker at heart. But his running back days are now. Just ask the Washington Huskies after the remarkable freshman from the Seattle suburbs ran right through their defense. Jack ran for 60 yards and four scores, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a touchdown pass, and No. 13 UCLA stayed in control of its destiny in the Pac-12 South race with a 41-31 victory over Washington on Friday night. Devin Lucien turned a short pass into a 40-yard TD with 9:57 to play, and the Bruins (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) got creative to hold off a lively challenge from the Huskies (6-4, 3-4), who lost starting quarterback Keith Price to a shoulder injury right before halftime. Jack followed up his 120-yard debut at running back last week by becoming the 13th player in UCLA history to score four touchdown ...

According to various media reports, here is the list of potential USC head coaching candidates: 1.) Jack Del Rio (D. Coordinator/Denver Broncos) 2.) Steve Sarkisian (H.C./University of Washington) 3.) Kevin Sumlin (H.C./Texas A&M) 4.) James Franklin (H.C./Vanderbilt) 5.) KLIFF KINGSBURY (H.C./Texas Tech) The only one I like on the list is Sumlin. I think we sighs make Jon Gruden an offer, personally.
I wanna hear from some of my So Cal USC people out there about the Lane Kiffin firing and who should be the new coach. My picks...1) Steve Sarkisian...2) Jeff Fisher and I do not want Jack Del Rio as the coach, he's doesn't seem like a long term guy.
Please bring Jon Gruden to USC! Lol...But in reality I wouldn't mind seeing Steve Sarkisian back @ Troy or Chris Peterson & his high powered offensive play book would fit in nicely as well. All 3 are my personal favorite candidates. As a matter of fact, Pat Haden should let me do the interviews...
That was a joke based on the Steve Sarkisian comments.
From The Mountains To The Sea! From Scoop Rudy! . Southern California fired Lane Kiffin early Sunday morning, ending the coach's tumultuous tenure a few hours after the Trojans lost 62-41 at Arizona State. Ed Orgeron was picked as USC's interim head coach by athletic director Pat Haden, who dismissed Kiffin at the airport following the Trojans' flight home. USC (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) has eight games left under Orgeron, Kiffin's assistant head coach and the former Mississippi head coach. "It's never the perfect time to do these things, but I thought it was the right time," Haden said. Haden fired Kiffin in a 3 a.m. meeting at the Trojans' private airport terminal, but not before a 45-minute chat in which Kiffin tried to change Haden's mind. Haden didn't hire Kiffin, but had been firmly behind the coach until Saturday, when the Trojans matched the most points allowed in school history. The loss was the seventh in 11 games for a high-profile program still struggling under the cumulative effect of NCAA sanctions. ...
USC Football Candidates: Steve Sarkisian is the leader of the pack?
Source inside tells us that no one from USC has made any overtures to Steve Sarkisian either through the UW AD or his agent.
So Lane Kiffin fired by USC wow let the Steve Sarkisian to USC rumore begin in 3..2..1.
Should be interesting who takes the USC job.. maybe Steve Sarkisian, Del Rio, Pat Fitzgerald. Also keep eye on Chis Peterson... and Gruden?

Im thinking Steve sarkisian should run the Trojans.
any word if USC will pursue Steve Sarkisian to coach next season?
I like the James Franklin angle. Seems destine for big success. Also like Steve Sarkisian for USC. Think he’s a good coach.
First three names for job: Jack Del Rio, Steve Sarkisian, Tim DeRuyter. Not too many names floating this early. Orgeron won't get it.
USC fires Lane Kiffin; Orgeron is interim coach... I guess Steve Sarkisian is going to get a monster retention raise!
As for the future head coach, no clue. The media has Jack Del Rio and Steve Sarkisian at the top of the list
Steve Sarkisian, Mike Riley, mike Belotti and a bunch of dreamboat candidates who won't want it.
Adios, Lane Kiffin. I'm predicting that next year Gary Patterson will be coaching at Texas, Steve Sarkisian will be coaching at USC and Al Golden will be coaching at Ohio State after all the information comes out about Aaron Hernandez and Urban Meyer at Florida.
Land kiffin was not prepared to be a head coach. Al Davis is part to blame. Steve Sarkisian was the Trojans coordinator
The next head football coach at USC will be former offensive coordinator and current Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian.
Steve Sarkisian at Washington. I’d like to see them go after him at seasons end. He was asst head coach during Pete Carroll era.
I thought about it for a min and realized that Bo Pelini, Steve Sarkisian, and Dabo Sweeny all became head coaches the same year. 6 seasons later Washington is rising w an explosive offense and Clemson is a top 5 team. 2 of those teams have big name D Coordinators while Bo gives coordinator jobs to his golfing buddies w no experience. Hmmm time to connect the dots...
I hope Steve Sarkisian gets u$c job, taking him from UW would create uncertainty and disrupt recruiting at 2 Pac 12 schools.
After this season, does USC hire Steve Sarkisian as new head coach? (joebravo)

I like ESPN's Jesse Palmers choice for the next USC Football Coach .. Steve Sarkisian.. Perfect fit .. Forget bringing in someone that has a BIG name like Herm Edwards .. Gotta be a TROJAN !
Steve Sarkisian to SC? Oh, how good would that be? Screw the Huskies and power up the Trojans in one move!
The question now is where USC goes from here. The Trojans’ job is highly regarded as one of the top jobs in the country, and many names have popped up in regards to the job, including Vanderbilt coach James Franklin, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian — a former USC assistant — and Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald.
I don't enjoy to see anyone get fired but now that it happened, all I can say is Steve Sarkisian. Who wants to get rained on every day?
Trojans should go after Sark at UW! Steve Sarkisian has turned Washington around in his 5th year BUT they lose a coach, QB and many senior players. It'd be a great time for him to "go home" after this year!
I've never been so happy the day after a USC loss...potential replacements I've heard: Steve Sarkisian, Jack Del Rio, Jeff Fisher, and...Chip Kelly?!?! Thoughts??

Sport: NCAAF (5* NCAAF Play of the Day) Market: Navy @ Western Kentucky Pick: Total OVER 60 ½ points Odds: $1.92 Agency: Sportsbet Wager: 5 units Analysis: The Navy Midshipmen can run the football against just about anyone. It doesn't matter if their opponent knows the run is coming, because they can't stop it. Western Kentucky's weakness on defence is stopping the run. The Hilltoppers have been giving up running yards by the bunches. Opponents are running for 195 yards per game against them. Western Kentucky's offense is top-notch, and they have one of the most underrated runners in the country in Antonio Andrews. Andrews has already run for 6 TD's this year. Navy's defense isn't good, and we expect both teams to get huge chunks of yardage in this one. The over is 7-1 in the Hilltoppers last 8 home games. We expect a game that gets into the mid 60's at a minimum. Take the OVER 60 ½ points in this one for a massive 5 units in our 5* NCAAF Play of the Day.

Fusky Friday - Steve Sarkisian and Mike Leach were were riding together to a coaches' conference and they got in a wreck and both of them died. They entered the Pearly Gates and God takes Steve Sarkisian on his tour of heaven first. He shows Steve a little two-bedroom house with an old faded Husky banner hanging from the front porch. "This is your house coach. Most people don't get their own house up here," God says. Steve looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one sitting on the top of the hill. It's a huge three story mansion with white marble columns. Gorgeous WSU Cougar flags line both sides of the sidewalk and a huge WSU banner hangs between the marble columns. "Thanks for the house, God. But let me ask you a question. We have beat WSU many times and all I get is this little two-bedroom house with a faded banner while Mike Leach gets a mansion with a huge Cougar banner and sparkling new Cougar flags flying all over the place, just for beating us once. Why is that?" God loo ...

The following is a statement from UW football coach Steve Sarkisian regarding former Husky coach Don James: "The thoughts and prayers of the Husky Family are with Coach James as he prepares to begin chemotherapy treatment next week.
