Report: Sarkisian Learned Of Firing Through E-Mail And Texts


USC fired Steve Sarkisian a day after he was forced by the school to take a leave of absence amid questions of his sobriety. What we we didn’t know until now is how Sarkisian found out. According to Joe Schad of ESPN, Sakisian found out he was fired through emails and text messages from his friends.

According to Schad, Sarkisian couldn’t answer Pat Haden’s calls informing him of his firing because he was on a plane on his way to a treatment facility.

USC’s parting of ways with Sarkisian came quickly. It all started when Sarkisian showed up drunk to a team meeting on Sunday. After many stories about his drinking problems emerged, USC decided to part ways with the coach on Monday. Sarkisian is now in a treatment facility and should remain there for 30 days.
