After the USC Trojans decided to hire Washington Huskies‘ head coach Steve Sarkisian to the same job Monday, interim head coach Ed Orgeron decided to submit his resignation letter. According to a report, Orgeron was “outraged” that he was not named the Trojans’ head coach after leading the team to a 6-2 record following the firing of Lane Kiffin.
Another report surfaced claiming that Orgeron had applied to be the head coach at Florida Atlantic, but Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports reports there is “no truth” to that report.
According to Inside USC, Orgeron had an “emotional meeting” with the Trojans and is now applying for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons’ job, which just opened. Veteran coach Jim Grobe announced his resignation on Monday after leading the team to five bowl appearances and an ACC Championship in 13 seasons.
GOD BUILT US TO LAST. I LOVE YOU TROJAN NATION. FIGHT ON !
