USC athletic director Pat Haden isn’t happy with Trojans head coach Steve Sarkisian at all. This is part of the reason why Haden is forcing Sarkisian to take a leave of absence, according to various media reports.
Am told by multiple sources Steve Sarkisian showed up in no condition to work today & #USC brass knows he needs serious help.

In a press conference, Haden said that Sarkisian is “not healthy” and he needs to get help as soon as he can. USC was upset by Washington 17-12 on Thursday Night, following out of the Top 25 in the AP Poll and Our Poll. USC fell to 3-2 on the season following the loss.
Offensive coordinator Clay Helton will serve as USC’s interim coach until Sarkisian is deemed ready to return by Haden.
