The War Room - Coaching Craziness

What a crazy week around the USC football program. Going from the loss to Washington to the loss of the head coach and don't look now, but the Trojans take on Notre Dame on Saturday. We have you covered on all of it and more in the War Room.

More details of what is inside:

  • A crazy week for USC fans was nothing compared to what former USC head coach Steve Sarkisian went through. We hope and pray Sark gets the help he needs and is able to stay strong on his road to recovery.
  • Has any college football quarterback dealt with more off the field distractions than Cody Kessler? We don't think so.
  • Notes on several different head coaching candidates for the USC Trojans.
  • What would it mean for USC if somehow, someway instead of hiring one of Pete Carroll's former assistants to run the program, the Trojans brought back the man himself?
  • We go into detail on the two USC de-commits and what the status of each of the current commits is following the firing of Sark.
  • Who will step up on the offensive line now that Max Tuerk is out for the season?
  • Does USC have a shot with UCLA commit Gardena (Calif.) Serra four-star defensive end Oluwole Betiku?
  • The Trojans no stranger to interim head coaches. We talked to a former one, USC baseball coach Dan Hubbs, about what it's like to have that interim tag on you while leading a team.
  • Plus plenty more!
