Ed Orgeron sends USC his resignation letter


The USC Trojans have made their decision, and they’ve hired Washington Huskies’ Steve Sarkisian. That left the future of interim head coach, who wanted the job, Ed Orgeron up in the air. USC reportedly is trying to keep Orgeron at SoCal, but there reports that he sent in a letter of resignation.

Reportedly, Orgeron was offered more money and the assistant head coach job but ultimately he turned it down. There still seems to be a lot of “unconfirmed reports” surrounding this, but Heather Brittany is saying the reports have been confirmed.

Then it was confirmed

FOX Sports’ Lindsey Thiry cites unconfirmed reports.

“My job is to find the best coach of USC, not just for this year, for five, six or eight games or next year, but, hopefully, for five, 10 or 15 years,” USC athletic director Pat Haden said before hiring Sarkisian, via ESPN. “So we’re going to go through this process we have, and, at the end of the day, I think we’ll have a rational decision.”

[UPDATE]: Orgeron has resigned and won’t coach USC in their bowl game, offensive coordinator Clay Helton will coach in his place.
