“Faced with mounting reports of erratic behavior by its football coach, USC fired the troubled Steve Sarkisian [this] afternoon,” Monday, Oct. 12, 2015, reports the Los Angeles Times.
According to the story, “The announcement capped a string of incidents that included Sarkisian appearing intoxicated at a football booster event in August and seeming not himself during a recent game.
“The final straw came Sunday when he acted strangely at a team meeting, then left campus before practice began. Athletic Director Pat Haden immediately put him on indefinite leave before following up with Monday’s decision.”
The USC Trojan football team has a record of 3-2 this season.
