Trojan players met with Pat Haden and Ed Orgeron in a team meeting this afternoon on the campus of USC.

The meeting lasted less than twenty minutes.

After they were informed of the hiring of Steve Sarkisian as USC's new head coach and the resignation of Orgeron, players left the meeting, instructed to not discuss the coaching change with the media.

Several players left the meeting with visible tears including freshmen Kenny Bigelow and Khaliel Rodgers.

Assistant defensive line coach Pete Jenkins, Orgeron's mentor, also left the meeting visibly upset.

A source inside the meeting tells SCPlaybook it was, "Not fun".
