Before the season, USC coach Steve Sarkisian was escorted out of a “Salute to Troy” kickoff event after getting piss drunk and firing out dildo jokes to attendees. Now, after a rocky 3-2 start to “Seven Win Steve” and the Trojans’ season, Sarkisian has been asked to take a leave of absence from the program after showing up today “in no condition to work.”
Am told by multiple sources Steve Sarkisian showed up in no condition to work today & #USC brass knows he needs serious help.

I'm told players just met w/Pat Haden and Clay Helton is interim coach as Haden has asked Sarkisian to take a temp. leave of absence #USC

Steve Sarkisian will seek treatment and Clay Helton is interim coach at USC per source

We all have our vices, and the past few USC coaches have been no exception. Lane Kiffin is “allegedly” a womanizer, Ed Orgeron is no stranger to restraining orders, and Pete Carroll is a 9/11 truther. Alcohol doesn’t seem that bad in comparison. You hate to see it get to this point, but hopefully Sarkisian can get his shit together before it’s too late..
