Sarkisian previously stated earlier today that he didn’t interview for the USC job. Guess that was lie. On the positive side, this is a fantastic hire for the school. Having previously coached there under former head coach peter caroll, Sarkisian knows all about the rich tradition and need to win at USC. Recruits should flock to the prestigious program with this hire. He made Washington a contender, imagine what he does with the resources USC has to offer.
