USC HC Steve Sarkisian Taking a Leave of Absence

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.

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.
