    Um, no. USC isn’t going to risk more shake up in their recruiting class by firing Sark. Who else would they hire? Orgeron? I was/am a supporter of O, but that ship has sailed. Everyone has calmed down after the Sark hire and are curious to see what he does to the program.

    • gotroy22

      USC recruits itself. This is a real opportunity for us to select among the 8-12 freshly fired NFL coaches next week and pick the next Pete Carroll.

      • Toejam For Life

        Hasn’t looking for the next Pete Carroll gotten you in your past and present situation?

        • rusoviet

          Hey whitebread I don’t know – let’s see how the guy that PC replaced with the Seahawks works out at bel-air

        • gotroy22

          Pete had no SC connections. Looking for Pete flunkies is the problem. Getting a former head coach in the NFL is the way to go.

        • HeySUCs

          A major point. But remember Little Petey Pom-Pom famous last words, “I didn’t know squat.”

      • Henry Bibby

        Stop with “the next Pete Carroll”. The hiring of Pete Carroll was looked at as a failure. Face the facts, USC got lucky with Pete. They will need to get lucky again. And no NFL coach is going back to college with the success of Pete, Harbaugh and Kelly.

        • gotroy22

          Really Dead beat Dad? Why don’t you stick to something you know about like abandoning your kids. The best thing SC can do is bring in a no-nonsense pro-trained coach like Pete or even the ruins Mora instead of a networking suck up like Sarkiffian.

      • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

        If USC recruits itself then why don’t we have a top 10 class right now? Enough with the stupid Wolfisms.

        • gotroy22

          We are on our 4th coach in the last 2 months and yet Chris Brown committed to USC in spite of the chaos. If we bring in a seasoned former NFL head coach watch the recruits stampede away from Westwood High to us.

        Great job by lose Mora to leverage his position against the Lil gutties and really sock it to ‘em!!! NOBODY wanted him !! especially Washington or they would have hired him..SUC_LA was so pathetic bidding against themselves!! Remember the ALAMO!!

        • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

          Let’s lay out what really happened:
          1. USC miffed on a top-drawer hire, settling for Sarkiffian, a .500 level P12 coach who has never won anything.
          2. Sark vacates the Washington job, allowing Mora to leverage a 6-year extension on his contract, and more $$ to pay to his assistants.
          3. Because of the influx of cash, Mora is able to keep his ENTIRE staff, and pUSC whiffs on trying to steal Klemm.
          4. Because Kiffin was threatened by the straight-talking Pola, and fired one of the nation’s best recruiter-coaches, UCLA is able to land him.
          5. Further (oh, it gets EVEN better), now that the Washington job is open, they hire PETERSEN! (Talk about rubbing salt in the wound.)
          6. The topper to all of this is that now Sarkiffian is embroiled in a controversy over recruiting violations.

          Nice try to spin it, though… LOL.

  • FMUSC81

    It is if theirs a direct link to Sark … Haden can’t afford to have a guy knowingly allowed his asst to violate the rules… We have the biggest compliance dept in the country … if any shred of “evidence” links Sark… Haden, to save face has no option but to let him go …. Haden had nearly two months to choose a coach , and you can’t tell me he had Sark as his man for two months ….we know he didn’t …. Sark was the only guy open to keeping CEO on the staff in some form … I think Sark was to caught up in the moment at becoming the the HC at USC and missed this “Minor ” Detail … If so , give Sark the Benifit…. Haden and co. should have done a better job of “Vetted ” Sark regardless ….. I see how this is gonna go down… USC will clear Sark of any wrong doing …. UDUB is going to show Sark was aware of the violations to get out of being reprimanded by the NCAA….

    • Saul Goodman

      It is time for the Haden rah rahs to accept the Emporer has no clothes. Of all the issues, one common denominator remains

      • FMUSC81

          • FMUSC81

            No just pointing out the obvious… hiring a head football coach is a big decision… and if ,and I mean IF!!! Sark knew about these payments… than Haden screwed up …. big time… You don’t be a bRuin !!! That’s what us Trojans pride ourselves on … We can deal with reality!!!! fUcla’s bRuins can’t thats what makes them Sad…. don’t go down that road ….

            So, will he be on his knees or will you be on yours?

    • FightON

      Haden had Sark on his mind a lot earlier than you think. I think your point on O is a good one, but there were other reasons to hire Sark. The fact remains: Haden and Garret believe that bringing in a PC assistant will be like bringing back PC.

      If there is a direct link to Sark – which has yet to be proven – I still do not see Haden doing a thing. He will claim the obvious: how was he supposed to know? Should he have vetted every single assistant coach and their activities? USC responded with its investigation once it got the tip, so they are going to say that shows institutional control.

      I do not see Haden going back on Sark. Haden will say it is to ensure stability which is only partially true. Haden wants a legacy and his gut tells him Sark is it.

      • FMUSC81

        Haden went with Sark cause of recruiting also.. no denying Sark , like Kiffin is a great recruiter….. Sark has a ton of relationships in SoCal HS makeup…Bring in a East Coast guy didn’t make sense for a non-national name like a NFL coach brings…. But at the same time the difference this time around is Prez Nikias is very involved with the Football team … Former Prez Sample wasn’t….I Know for a fact …. A lot of big money Alums and Booster have the Ear of Nikias and doesn’t want any more issues with compliance…reason he went to Haden , and canned Garret for bring in Kiffin and his Baggage…. Garrett had assured him Kiffin was clean at all his programs…. And that the NCAA had nothing with Reggie Bush …
        Nikias will insist on letting go of Sark if he has knowledge …. as Much as Nikias cares about getting USC back on top… he’s not willing to sacrifice the University Integrity…. Keeping a coach who ” if he ” broke the rules will be a black eye regardless of recruits… Going through another year of 9 to 10 wins would be tolerated to get the right coach should they have to get rid of Sark.
